Tunisia orders an investigation against members of parliament -local media

TUNIS (Reuters) - The Tunisian justice minister asked the attorney general to open a judicial investigation‮ ‬against members of a suspended parliament on charges of “conspiring against state security” after they held an online full session on Wednesday, local media said.

Tunisian parliamentarians voted on Wednesday to repeal presidential decrees suspending their chamber and giving Kais Saied near total power, openly defying him in an online session, although he dismissed their meeting as illegal.
