The Secretary-General of the Tunisian General Labor Union, Noureddine Taboubi, announced, on Monday, that he had been subjected to death threats due to the union’s central position on the Tunisian Airlines crisis, whose general manager, Olfa Al-Hamdi, was dismissed.
In radio statements carried by the Tunisian Nessma website, Taboubi stated that he had filed a judicial complaint after receiving death threats from a Tunisian resident in New York, in relation to the union’s position on the General Director of Tunisian Airlines.
Al-Taboubi considered that the “Ennahda” movement was responsible for the recent crisis that the Tunisian Airlines company witnessed, explaining that it had interfered through a former minister in order to put its hand on the company and control public institutions, pointing out that some of the leaders of Ennahda deal with Tunisia as a “spoil”.
Earlier, the Tunisian Ministry of Transport sacked the general manager of “Tunisian Airlines” Olfa El-Hamdi, who was appointed in January, following a dispute with the Tunisian General Labor Union over the company’s difficult financial position for years.
And the Ministry of Transport and Logistics announced, in a statement, the decision to “relieve Olfa Al-Hamdi from her duties as head and general manager of Tunisian Airlines”, without revealing the reasons.
“There is an accumulation of many mistakes … including the breach of the duty of reservation, and the publication of documents on Facebook, which is unacceptable,” Transport Minister Moez Shaqshouk said in a statement to the private “Shams FM” radio.
The minister added, “We also invited her to a meeting (Monday) morning to look into the company’s situation, and she refused … This is a lack of respect for the supervisory authority.”
On the other hand, al-Taboubi stressed that the President of the Republic, Qais Said, wants the Tunisian government to leave completely, not just the ministers with whom it is almost corrupt, indicating that the ministerial crisis is a result of the disagreement between President Said, the Speaker of Parliament, and the leader of “Ennahda” Rached Ghannouchi.
Tunisia is experiencing a constitutional crisis, with President Qais Said’s reluctance to accept new ministers in the government reshuffle to take the oath under a lawsuit amid suspicions of corruption and conflict of interests about a number of them.
