On the day of his arrest, on 26 November 2007, he was travelling to Tunis to try to reclaim it,” the organisation said. “He had previously gone on a two-week hunger strike to protest at your administration’s refusal to return it”.“We believe that Slim Boukhdir has been the victim of several injustices. Having spent 238 days in prison, the journalist now wants to take up his work as a journalist again. We urge you to intervene so that he can get back his national ID card as well as his passport,” the organisation concluded.The journalist was arrested during a check on ID papers of passengers using a collective taxi between Sfax and Tunis. He was immediately taken before cantonal court in Sakiet Ezzit in the Sfax suburbs and sentenced, at the end of an unfair trial, to a year in prison for “insulting an official in the exercise of his duty”, “breach of accepted standards of decency » and “refusing to produce his identity papers for police”. He endured harsh conditions during his time in jail, including poor hygiene, the threat of physical harm from his fellow prisoners and deprivation of letters and independent newspapers.
