During his reign over Tunisia, former dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali jailed thousands of People from the Islamic movement. The ex-ruler fled to Saudi Arabia in 2011 following the Tunisian uprising. The Saudi authorities refuse to extradite the former dictator despite the fact that he's been sentenced to life imprisonment over different charges. Now over two dozen representatives of more than 30.000 of the Dictator's victims gathered in Al Kasbah Area near the Tunisian Premier Office to denounce the silence of the Ministers who belong to the ruling Ennahda Islamic party about the injustice in the post revolution era. The protesters were joined by human rights and civil society activists.
