Four Men Jailed for Eating During Ramadan

A court in northern Tunisia has handed one-month jail-terms to four men for eating during Ramadan.
The four were found “eating and smoking in a public garden, a provocative act during Ramadan”, Chokri Lahmar, prosecution spokesman at the court in Bizerte said.

He said the four men had 10 days to appeal against their one-month sentences before the terms
take effect.

Their sentencing, which followed complaints from other local residents, comes ahead of a call circulated on social media for a June 11 demonstration to protect the rights of those who decline to take part in the Ramadan fast.
