Tunisian security authorities have arrested Abdelfattah Taghouti, a spokesman for the Ennahda Movement, a senior movement official has said.
Riad Al-Shuaibi, political adviser to the head of the Ennahda Movement Rached Ghannouchi, told the Anadolu Agency that a national guard unit in the capital, Tunis, arrested Taghouti.
He added that the reasons for his arrest remain unknown, but it could be related to a previous case in which Taghouti was arrested and then released.
There was no immediate comment from the security authorities on the arrest.
On 14 March, Taghouti was arrested in a case of “conspiracy against state security” before being released ten days later.
Since 11 February, Tunisian authorities have launched a widespread arrest campaign against critics of President Kais Saied, accusing them of being part of a conspiracy against state security.
While the Tunisian leader insists that his measures were meant to “save” the country, critics have accused him of orchestrating a coup.
