(TAP)- United Nations Resident Coordinator in Tunisia Diego Zorrilla Thursday urged Tunisian authorities "to free UN expert Moncef Kartas and return back the technical equipment he had in his possession when he was arrested."

The UN official told TAP, on the sidelines of World Press Freedom Day observances, Kartas was "unlawfully detained" given his status as member of the panel of experts of the United Nations security council committee established pursuant to resolution 1973 (2011) concerning Libya.

"Kartas was picked to serve as member of the UN commission for a third term ; his Tunisian nationality has nothing to do with his arrest, especially that he was on an official mission," he said.
