In a statement to TAP, Gzara added that "the first investigating judge at the Judicial Counter-Terrorism Division has issued 17 charges against 33 suspects, including "membership in a terrorist organisation and money laundering."

At a press briefing held on June 1, the defense lawyers committee of martyrs Belaïd and Brahmi had announced that 34 defendants in the case known as "the secret apparatus" of the Ennahdha, including Rached Ghannouchi, were banned from traveling.
