    (ANSAmed) - ROME, 28 LUG - The judicial pool of Tunis, which is responsible for handling economic and financial crimes, has opened a series of investigations into political parties, institutions and public companies, announced by Tunis Court spokesman and prosecutor Mohsen Dali in a statement to the local media Business News.

    Among the cases are those relating to lobbying contracts, published by the Arabic-language newspaper Al Maghreb, on the basis of which the prosecutor launched investigations into the Islamic party Ennahdha, its modernist ally Qalb Tounes and the "3ich Tounsi" association for "pressure group and lobbying contracts" and for obtaining "illegal foreign funding" for their election campaigns.

    According to Al Maghreb, several members of the two parties and other public figures are being investigated.

    Another open file is that relating to the falsification of the final report of the Truth and Dignity Commission (IVD), a transitional judicial body now dissolved due to the end of its mandate, in relation to the Franco-Tunisian Banque (BFT) affair.

    The court also examined the case of suspicious administrative operations in connection with engine maintenance for the aircraft of national carrier Tunisair, Dali said.

    Another corruption investigation was opened for mismanagement of public funds during Chawki Tabib's presidency at the National Anti-Corruption Authority (INLUCC). (ANSAmed).
