Tunisian human rights lawyer explains importance of Urgent Actions

On the night of February 11, Tunisian security forces ransacked the office of Radhia Nasraoui, a human rights lawyer and mother of two. All the files relating to her clients, legal codes, books and a computer were stolen. Nothing was taken from colleagues sharing the same office. An Urgent Action was issued and updated on her behalf three times in 1998 expressing concern for pattern of harrassment and intimidation against her.
