(TAP) - Nabil Karoui, owner of the TV channel Nesma, was questioned by the first investigating judge at the Tunis Judicial Economic and Financial Division for eight hours over the case brought against him by I Watch, said Tuesday evening to TAP defence lawyer Heikal Al-Mekki.

He added that "the questioning will be completed Wednesday due to the technical nature of the case.”

He pointed out that Nabil Karoui had explained to the judge that "all his financial and accounting transactions are legal and that the data on which the complaint was filed by I Watch are null."

The investigating judge decided on July 12 to postpone the interrogation of Nabil Karoui until July 23, and to keep him at liberty, over the case brought against him by I Watch.

 According to well-informed sources, after the investigations conducted as part of this case, the investigating judge in charge of the case decided to address the charge of aggravated money laundering (recidivism) to Nabil and Ghazi Karoui and to have benefited from the facilities provided by the exercise of their professional activity, in accordance with the provisions of the organic law n ° 2015-26 of August 7, 2015, on fight against terrorism and suppression of money laundering.
