Tunisia: Tunisian media mogul and ex-presidential candidate arrested for corruption

Former Tunisian presidential candidate and media mogul Nabil Karoui has been arrested on charges of money laundering and tax evasion, a spokesman for the judicial court has said.

Karoui is facing the same charges that forced him to spend most of last year’s presidential campaign in jail, the state news agency TAP reported on Thursday.

Karoui was released days before the runoff vote in October 2019, which he lost in a landslide to Kais Saied, a retired constitutional law professor affectionately dubbed “Robocop”.
