Tunisian official: Call anti-corruption NGO ‘traitors’

IWatch was founded following the 2011 Tunisian revolution as a civil society organisation to fight widespread corruption after the authoritarianism of former President Zine El Abidne Ben Ali. The group was able to draft whistleblower protection laws passed by the Tunisian parliament earlier this year.

In a released statement, partner NGO organisation Transparency International said that the leaked recordings appear to be part of an organised smear campaign aimed at “damaging the reputation of the organisation and its members”.
