A few of you have mentioned, that the Tunisian people are not afraid of the Police anymore. Maybe some are not, but the once I spoke to had a different opinion about this. And they also think, that the majority of the Tunisian people still have the bad experiences with their policeforce in mind and would like to have NO contact with the police at all. Not even as a witness. They say, corruption and bribery is still around. Different then before, but still around. My witness (the brother of an employee of my hotel who spend the day with me sightseeing and shopping) disappeared after I really went to the Medina/Tourist police and got three policemen following me. He and also his brother told me later, that they have had the experience, that the police will give the people trouble, asking "Why do you have contacts with tourists?" they would even go to the employer of the people and interviewing them about the person (witness) and beside that, they will check the employer, if all papers are okay, all taxes paid etc. The owner of the shop my witness worked in became suddenly very quiet, when I came along with three policemen from Medina/Tourist Police to talk to the guy who molested me and "offered" me, to hit me! And many people in the Medina, who were witness of the incident did not call the police on their cell/mobile phone, after I have asked them to do. Even the guy working in the taxiphone shop did really hesitate to call the police from one of his phoneboots for me! I had to step out of the Medina to asked a person to call the police for me, which he did. But he must have been the 10th person I have asked to help me and the first who did! I mean, when you had experienced DECATES of pressure and bribery and blackmailing by the corrupt policeforce in your contry, it is not out of your head all of a sudden because there has been a "Revolution". Your grandparents and your parents also told you to beware and better change the side of the pavement when you see policemen coming towards you. The police was called from this man outside the Medina. I was waiting at Porte de Medina for one hour and no police came around. At least a woman came out of a shop and told me, that there is a Medina Police and where I can find it. Obviously the Tunisian men are more aware about their national police force as the women are and are less couragous as the Tunisian women! ?? !! So I went there, told the policemen what has happened and they walked with me up the street (Rue de Paris in Medina Sousse). While I was walking with them, the Medina salesmen became quiet, when they have spotted the police. And they were not wearing a uniform, they wore plain clothes. Even the guy who molested me and pushed me and offered to beat me up, wanted to escape with his car, when he saw me coming out of the Medina with three men. He started his car and wanted to disappear. One of the policemen stopped him. At that day, I was really pissed off. They want your money (in the Medina) and the people complain, that the tourists are not coming in that number than before, but if a tourists needs their help, they are refusing to do so! I mean, I did not asked them, to beat the idiot up for me, I only asked them, to make ONE phonecall (which I even pay for) BECAUSE: I don´t know the number of the police and I do not speak Arabic. And what I have seen at the police station in Sousse-Center (near Corniche Boujafaar) was not a "nice come together with cake and coffee" at all. Policemen shouting at the people. People crying. One guy was beaten up by policemen, his t-shirt was torn apart. The guy was pushed back and forth. Forced to sit on the dirty floor, even if there were enough seats around. I saw relatives of the arrested people coming in and begging the police for...?... I dont know...Mercy?...Fairness?... I saw the policemen behaving very rude to the local people. They were friendly to me, especially after I have mentioned the words "Ambassade allemagne" and "Advocate". Okay, I do understand the Tunisian people after that experience that they dont want contact with the police, but if they want tourists to come, there must be a way of help, if the tourists are in need!
