(TAP) - The Court of Cassation dismissed the appeal filed by the defence lawyers of presidential candidate and head of “Heart of Tunisia” party Nabil Karoui, lawyer Kamel Ben Messaoud told TAP on Friday.

He said the Court of Cassation dismissed appeals against decisions of the Court of Appeal on the detention order against the Karoui brothers, the travel ban issued against them and the freezing of their assets.

Ridha Belhaj, a lawyer of Nabil Karoui, on Thursday, said his client began a hunger strike to demand his right to cast his ballot.

The Indictment Division of the Tunis Court of Appeal, on September 5, rejected a request for the release of Nabil Karoui who has been held in custody since August 23 over a money-laundering and tax evasion case.
