Tunisia PM: government to cut wages of employees on strike

Tunisia's Prime Minister, Habib Essid reiterated his government's decision to cut down the salaries of public employees on strike either as part of a union or on individual base.

Essid told governors on Saturday night during a meeting to review all financial transactions that have been pumped into projects that have not been exploited rightfully.

According to the prime minister, the gas- pipeline to Gafsa project, which cost nearly 69 million dinars, has been disabled for three years, which led to shutting down a number of relevant development projects.

Tunisia has been suffering from troubled security, political and economic situation characterized by labour strikes since the fall of the former regime.
