Algeria – Two Algerian nationals were arrested in Tunisia in possession of no less than 10,000 psychotropic tablets. The two individuals were apprehended by the Tunisian National Guard (equivalent of the National Gendarmerie in Algeria).
According to the Tunisian press, it was at the Babboch border crossing near Ain Drahem that the two suspects were intercepted while on board a vehicle.
After their hearing by the Tunisian security forces, the two Algerian nationals confessed. In particular, they said they had tablets from a third Algerian based in Tunis. Located in Bardo in the heart of the Tunisian capital, the home of the latter was the subject of a search.
However, it is not known whether he was arrested or not, since the Tunisian press did not provide any further information on this subject.
As for the two accused, they were charged with possession of narcotics belonging to Table "A".
