We had an informative meeting yesterday at our Expat Security Professionals forum where we discussed & analyzed the security situation in Tunisia.
Key Discussion Items
- Importance of obtaining accurate information and not being caught up with the media or rumor mills
- Sensitive week ahead with Tunisia’s opposition parties launching a week of protests starting on Saturday, August 24th
- Awareness of events that may significantly alter the security situation:
- An attack by Islamist on any opposition politician or an attack in general
- Strong police reaction towards protests taking place this week
- Significant political change that does not have popular support
We also discussed the importance of Expats maintaining a practical level of situational awareness as a general precaution.
Monitoring this week
We will monitor this week closely to see how well the alleged political deals translate both in the arena and among the general population.
