Tunis. Tunisia opened on Saturday a national conference calling for justice for the victims of the Ben Ali regime, with its leaders saying that scores must be settled for reconciliation to begin.
“The wounds of the past must be cured and healed,” President Moncef Marzouki said at a meeting attended by UN representatives. “Tunisians are expecting tangible results. They cannot wait indefinitely.
“We have faith in transitional justice and not in a vengeful justice. But a justice that forgets to settle the score is not one.”
