On Dec 13, 2016 ENCA reported: TUNISIA – Two young Tunisian men have been arrested and charged with homosexuality, a court official in the central city of Sousse said Tuesday.
Achref, a 20-year-old student, told AFP he was arrested last Wednesday along with Sabri, 22, on a street in the town centre.
“‘You were doing something with your boyfriend, weren’t you? You bring a curse on the country,’ the police told me,” he said.
He said he was driven to a police station, slapped, insulted and forced to sign a police report.
Brought before a judge, he said he had been forced to undergo an anal examination, a process non-governmental organisations have slammed as “degrading”.
The two were released and will stand trial from January 6, the court official said.
