Two individuals close to former Tunisian dictator Ben Ali have been imprisoned in separate investigations into suspected financial corruption. Marouane Mabrouk, a leading Tunisian businessman and former son-in-law of Ben Ali, has been detained for suspected corruption in the management of a state-confiscated company. Abderrahim Zouari, a former Minister of Transport and Tourism, is imprisoned for allegedly obtaining benefits through his position. Both cases are part of investigations into public funds looted under Ben Ali’s regime. The imprisonment comes as Tunisia faces economic challenges, with President Kais Saied seeking to replenish the country’s coffers.
