    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, JULY 21 - Debate in parliament on a new draft anti-terror law against dirty money laundering in Tunisia will start tomorrow. The general legislative commission has finished examining all of the law's articles that will now need to be voted by parliament in plenary session. One article was included by the commission, providing for a ban on the charge of apostasy (Takfir in Arabic) and punishing a call on violence and hatred against religious minorities or other religions. The new legislation states: ''Anyone accusing others of apostasy (Takfir), or inciting others to do it, or promoting the spread of hatred between religious minorities or religions, can be punished with sentences that can include the death penalty. The convictions will be heavier according to whether they bring physical violence''.(ANSAmed).
