And sensimilia in the presidents palace Advice to Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali: Stay put in Saudi Arabia. The ousted president has been convicted on charges of possessing illegal drugs and weapons after a one-day trial in Tunis. He was sentenced in absentia to 15 years in jail. Ben Ali and his wife Leila were last month sentenced to 35 years in prison for embezzlement and misuse of state funds. Saudi Arabia has so far failed to extradite Ben Ali, despite a request by Tunisias new interim government. In court, his lawyer, Hosni Beji, was heckled as he described the drugs and gun-running charges as irrational, and asked, How can we imagine that a president holding power can have two kilogrammes of cannabis resin of mediocre quality [with intentions] of selling it? Mr Beji also said the guns found at Ben Alis palace after he fled were gifts from foreign leaders. SOURCE: The East African: - Last Word |Dreadlocks in Babylon chamber?
