Tunisia experienced several deadly attacks by Islamist extremists in 2015, which led its parliament to adopt a new counterterrorism law that imperils human rights and lacks adequate safeguards against abuses. The 2014 constitution guarantees key civil, political, social, economic, and cultural rights. However, Tunisian authorities have made little progress in overhauling legislation that fails to comply with the constitution, particularly the penal code and code of criminal procedures. Several people have been prosecuted for alleged defamation or “insult” of state officials and on charges of “harming public order” or “public morals,” and a few journalists and bloggers for publishing information or their opinions.
