The ministry of interior announced last week that 110 security elements were terminated and around 6 of them would stand trial in court. The ministry spokesperson explained that investigation audits of the rank and file of the police, army and customs revealed that recruitment procedures in the period 2012-2015 were not very thorough. The communique explained that collusion and suspicious links between these 110 elements and smuggling or terrorist groups were uncovered. The announcement has stunned Tunisian public opinion. Crisis Group made a number of recommendations concerning security sector reform last July.
