    Haha, I don't think I actually know any.
    I just don't like the taste of it...but it bothers me not one iota if others want a drink....so I certainly wouldn't frequent Halal hotels.
    The desert? I dunno really....surely a pure, Halal hotel would not allow that :D
    Don't you blame it on me!! I can't help being so thoroughly entertaining that you don't want to sleep :p

    I.do love a good drink so i would avoid this type of hotel, cant actually be arsed with people who look down on others just because we could drink a river dry haha.
    Each to their own i guess.

    And one of the important reason is Algerians could drink in Tunisia as much as they want. Seems this initiative is against Algerians.:D

    Not heard anything yet. The most awful thing is that this is not a surprise. Sounds like an isolated incident but I’m sure for the tourists who have until now felt safe there this will be a light bulb moment.

    The two police officers stabbed by an individual yesterday in Djerba are in a stable state.

    The first officer was operated on and transferred to the intensive care unit while the second officer was luckier and healthier, according to sources from the Sadok Mkadem Regional Hospital in Djerba.

    Two mounted police officers were stabbed by an individual who refused to submit to a routine identity check at Djerba beach.

    The offender is 28 years old and is from the Bir Lahmer delegation in Tataouine and resides and works at the Ghomrassen delegation. He was placed in custody.

    In addition, the spokesman of the anti-terrorist judicial unit, Sofiene Seliti, announced that the public prosecutor in Medenine has carried out the first investigations and that the case has been transferred to the anti-terrorist judiciary. However, the terrorist trail has not been confirmed.

    Djerba: Knife attack against two police officers: "suspicion of terrorist act" (statements)
    12/07/2018 22:42, DJERBA/Tunisia
    [​IMG]
    (TAP) – The author of the attack against two policemen on patrol in the tourist zone of Djerba was brought before the judicial pole specialised in terrorist affairs for simple "suspicion of terrorist intent in the attack", spokesman of Medenine Court of First Instance Mourad Ouderni told TAP correspondent Thursday evening.

    "The first elements of the investigation with the suspect revealed a suspicion of terrorist intent, which will be thoroughly investigated by the judiciary counterterrorism pole," he said.

    For his part, spokesman of the pole, Sofiene Selliti, said in a statement to TAP that "the terrorist intent is not yet confirmed and the suspect was arrested at the disposal of the judiciary counterterrorism pole for interrogation ".

    The public prosecutor took charge of the case and authorised the National Investigation Unit for Terrorist Crimes at the Gorjani National Security Directorate to investigate the aggression.

    The author of the attack had with him at the time of the attack and after his arrest only a knife used in the assault on the two policemen, had previously told TAP spokesman of the first instance court of Medenine.

    "The case was thus considered a common crime and has no connection with a terrorist act, facts confirmed by security sources who described the operation as an act of violence and a criminal offense", he said.

    The two security officers were attacked with a knife Thursday afternoon during a patrol on the coast of Djerba by an individual who intrigued them with his winter clothes.

    The attacker refused to show his identity papers and stabbed the police officers when they tried to search him. Both officers were transported to the Sadok Mkaddem Regional Hospital in Djerba.

    One of the officers was slightly injured and the other more seriously injured.

    Me either. I'm slightly concerned about the lack of body armour on the Tunisian police....it shouldn't be so easy to take them out, leaving what would then be, unprotected tourists exposed :confused:
    I know it's not cheap, but for these cops to safeguard the public, they must first be safeguarded themselves....do they not wear stab vests? :confused:

    Man who kicked police officer in the head gets jail, will be repatriated

    The man will be repatriated back to Tunisia after he serves his sentence, with the magistrate calling him 'a danger to society and a threat to public order and Police'

    A magistrate has repeated his zero-tolerance stance on violence against police officers, saying that the police “must be protected whilst doing their work and nobody is excused -whatever the reason may be- for threatening or injuring police officers.”

    Tunisian Abdell Raouf Mohfoudi Ali Hassan was charged with attacking, insulting and threatening officers whilst in the police lockup.

    Inspector Priscilla Caruana Lee had told Magistsate Joe Mifsud last month how the man had been in the police lockup when he had started to bang his head against the door. He was taken to Mater Dei Hospital for a check-up, but while there he had kicked a police sergeant in the head, slightly injuring him. Hassan was discharged from hospital and taken back into custody.

    Police had then heard him smash a bathroom window and found him in the bathroom, broken glass in hand, about to cut himself.

    Inspector Jeffrey Scicluna had explained that the man was then tasered.

    The court said it felt it must once again send the message to society that this attitude is not acceptable and would be punished.

    “The police are there to protect the citizen and should not be placed in a situation where they are afraid of exercising their right to correct law-breaking individuals.”

    The magistrate encouraged police officers to intervene wherever there is a breach of the law “with the intention of bringing harmony to the country.”

    The police had a right to go home in one piece, uninjured and without the fear of having contracted some infection that takes weeks to diagnose.

    The court found Hassan guilty of all charges and sentenced him to two years imprisonment, together with a fine of €5,000. His €2,000 bail guarantee was also seized.

    Magistrate Mifsud ordered that the man be forcibly repatriated to Tunisia after serving his sentence “because he is a danger to society and a threat to public order and the Police, more so to the average citizen.”

    Germany deports 'Bin Laden bodyguard' to Tunisia
    • 13 July 2018

    Image captionAfter 9/11 Bin Laden was public enemy number one for the US
    Germany has deported to Tunisia a man who once allegedly protected Osama Bin Laden and had been living in Germany with his family since 1997.

    The 42-year-old Tunisian, known as Sami A, was put on a flight from Düsseldorf early on Friday, despite a German court ruling against his deportation.

    The faxed court decision reached the authorities too late to stop Sami A being deported, a court official said.

    Sami A had argued that he could be tortured if sent back to Tunisia.

    He was detained late last month after the migration authorities had decided he could be deported. But the Gelsenkirchen court had upheld his appeal against that decision.

    "I can confirm that Sami A was sent back to Tunisia this morning and handed over to Tunisian authorities," said interior ministry spokeswoman Annegret Korff, quoted by AFP news agency.

    Bin Laden ran the al-Qaeda jihadist network and approved the devastating 9/11 terror attacks on the US in 2001. He was shot dead by US special forces in Pakistan in 2011.

    Sami A was considered a security risk while living in the western city of Bochum, where he was receiving €1,168 (£1,022) a month in welfare payments. His asylum application was rejected in 2007.

    German media have not reported his full name for privacy reasons.

    He denies jihadist links. He has been living in Bochum with a German wife and four children.

    At least three of the 9/11 suicide pilots were members of an al-Qaeda cell based in Hamburg, northern Germany.

    According to witness testimony from a German anti-terror trial in 2005, Sami A served for several months in 2000 as one of Bin Laden's bodyguards in Afghanistan. He denies that, but judges in Düsseldorf believed the witness.

    Sami A was investigated for alleged al-Qaeda links in 2006, but he was not charged.

    He had obtained a temporary residence permit in Germany in 1999 and took several technology courses. He moved to Bochum in 2005.

    Meanwhile another court in the same city and building just a different room has ruled that the deported has to be brought back to Germany. Certainly all on cost of the german taxpayer. This is Angelas Germany 2018. Open borders for everyone. Any Terrorist or Murderer is heartedly welcome to Germany to retire.

    Court orders former bin Laden aide brought back to Germany

    By ASSOCIATED PRESS

    PUBLISHED: 18:29, 13 July 2018 | UPDATED: 18:29, 13 July 2018

    • BERLIN (AP) - A court in Germany ordered authorities Friday to bring back a former aide to Osama bin Laden - hours after he was deported to his native Tunisia on Friday.

    Sami A., whose last name wasn't given due to privacy laws, was flown to Tunis on a charter aircraft and handed over to Tunisian authorities, despite a court ruling blocking the move.

    The administrative court in the western city of Gelsenkirchen had ruled Thursday that the man should remain in Germany until the government receives guarantees he won't face torture in his homeland. But the fax informing authorities about the court's decision was sent on Friday morning - after the man had already landed in Tunisia.

    The Gelsenkirchen court subsequently told authorities to reverse the deportation at Germany's expense, saying it had been "illegal and breached fundamental principles of rule of law." The decision can be appealed.

    Sami A. had lived for several years with his wife and children in the western city of Bochum. The 42-year-old, described as a former bodyguard to the al-Qaida chief, was deemed to be a dangerous Islamist by German authorities and taken into custody in June.

    Possibly very good news!! :D

    Suspected Osama bin Laden bodyguard Sami A. to remain in Tunisia after Germany cancels deportation order
    Germany suspects 42-year-old Sami A. of working as a bodyguard to late al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden. A German court wants him to return from Tunisia after ruling his deportation was illegal.




    [​IMG]


    Tunisian authorities said on Saturday they do not plan to return a suspected Islamist to Germany after a German court ruled authorities had wrongly deported the man to his native country.

    "We have a sovereign justice system that is investigating him," a spokesman from Tunisia's anti-terrorism office told German news agency DPA. German authorities would have to wait until the investigation into Sami A.'s alleged terrorist ties had ended, he added.

    Deportation fiasco

    The 42-year-old Sami was arrested in Tunisia on Friday morning after German police deported him in a chartered airplane from the western city of Dusseldorf.

    But shortly after his arrival, it was revealed that a court Gelsenkirchen in northern Germany had blocked the deportation order on Thursday evening over concerns Sami could be tortured after his arrival in Tunisia. The decision, which was sent by fax, only reached officials responsible for carrying out the deportation on Friday morning.

    Controversy over an alleged former bin Laden bodyguard
    The court has since ordered for Sami to be returned to Germany, sparking anger among some German politicians and officials involved in the case. The German state and city where Sami lived prior to his deportation – North Rhine-Westphalia and Bochum – plan to appeal the court's ruling.

    Tunisia has said it has not yet received a return request from Germany.

    Suspected bin Laden bodyguard

    German authorities suspect Sami A., who first came to Germany in 1997 as a student, received military training in Afghanistan from al-Qaida, the Islamist group responsible for carrying out the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States. During his training, he allegedly worked as a bodyguard to the late al-Qaida leader Osama bin-Laden.

    Authorities also accuse Sami of spreading Islamist teachings as a Salafist preacher since he returned to Germany after the 2001 attacks. He is believed to have been part of Salafist and jihadist networks as late as 2015, according to an official report seen by German weekly Focus.

    A criminal investigation into the allegations ended without charges amid a lack of evidence.
