Videotaping police in flagranti
A minor at the age of 15 years, Tunis
As demonstrations erupted in the capital following an episode of police aggression, police intervened violently to disperse the protesters. Among them was a young boy of 15-years, who was grabbed by police officers in the street, forcefully undressed and kicked and beaten before being loaded into a police van. Videos of the scene caused a wave of outrage, forcing the Ministry of the Interior to react by suspending the perpetrators. A judicial investigation is ongoing and the outcome remains uncertain.
This case makes us think about the hundreds of victims of police violence, who will never obtain justice, just because there is no film that would proof the evidence.
