Tunisian Authorities Closing Down Restaurants During Ramadan
Al-Monitor reported yesterday that in Tunisia, for the fourth year in a row police are conducting raids forcing restaurants to close down during Ramadan. It is unclear what legal authority they have to take this action, though some are pointing to a circular issued in 1981 by the Prime Minister and canceled two days later by the head of state.
