Tunisia jails couple for public indecency" after they were caught naked in their car

Tunisia jails couple for public indecency

A couple have been sentenced to several months in prison in Tunisia after they were caught naked in their car.

Nassim Ouadi, a 33-year-old French-Algerian, and his 44-year-old Tunisian girlfriend were sentenced on Wednesday by a judge at the Carthage district court, having been convicted of public indecency, intoxication and insulting a public official.

According to their lawyer, Ghazi Mrabet, the couple were driving last Friday when they pulled over in Gammarth, a suburb of the capital, Tunis, to discuss the route.

"After two minutes, a police car arrived, and asked the couple for their IDs," the lawyer said in a statement posted on Facebook.

The woman handed over her ID from her handbag, but Ouadi, who does not speak any Arabic, went to get his passport from his suitcase, which was in the boot of the car.

"The policemen shouted at him, insulted him and forced him to the ground. He handed over his passport, and they then searched his luggage and then the car, even under the carpets," the lawyer added.

The couple were then taken to a police station, but after 20 minutes were told they could go home. A policeofficer warned them, however, that the episode would not end there.

"The Franco-Algerian, believing himself in France or in a film, then told the police: 'You think it will stop there? I want your names and your numbers. I intend to speak to my embassy. And that's when your lives will change,'" Mrabet's Facebook statement continued.

Ouadi was then accused of contempt of a public official, indecent assault and refusal to obey the police – charges often levelled against protesters in Tunisia, or against couples publicly displaying affection.

But the couple's arrest last week, and subsequent sentencing, has drawn widespread outrage on socialmedia, as reports began to emerge that the couple were first approached by police as they were kissing.

According to the police, they were found "in an indecent position".

The man was handed four months in prison for "public indecency" and "refusing to obey the police", with thewoman given a two-month sentence on the first charge only.

A spokesperson for the public prosecutor's office, Sofiene Sliti told AFP."It's an independent decision. What has been reported nationally and internationally is wrong, they weren't arrested for a kiss, the couple was naked," he added.

At the hearing Wednesday, the woman collapsed into tears when the court president read a police description saying a sexual act was in process when the couple were stopped on October 1 in a suburb of Tunis.

The woman said that her friend had simply taken her into his arms when the plainclothes police stopped them and made them get out of the car.

The Frenchman confirmed to the judge that he had tried to film the police to make a complaint about their behaviour.

A dozen defence lawyers had been arguing for an acquittal for the couple. The majority of the lawyers were working for free on the case, which has triggered an uproar in Tunisia over morality campaigns and policebehaviour.

The defence pointed to numerous flaws in the case, including hearings in Arabic which the Frenchman, who is of Algerian origin, did not understand.

"It is normal that he reacts badly when his fundamental rights were being violated," said lawyer Ghazi Mrabet, whose client is accused of intimidating police.

He pointed to what he said was "bad faith" on the part of the police, who he said were looking for revenge after being implicated over their handling of the case.

"This case highlights key problems with the judicial system and the police. Abuse of powers... lack of respect for citizens and their rights, attacks on individual liberty," said former deputy Nadia Chaabane, who is a member of a group to support the couple.

"The problem is that we have judges now who accept all these breaches and procedural problems," she said before the judgement.

Man kills mom's friend for flirting with his imaginary girlfriend

Man kills mom's friend for flirting with his imaginary girlfriend

A Florida man Brian Disario, 30, of Port Richey, allegedly shot and killed his mother's friend, David Armstrong, 56, because he believed the man was flirting with his girlfriend who was imaginary, officials said.

Disario's mother reportedly called police after the shooting, saying her son was mentally ill and had shot someone in the garage.

According to a 911 recording released to the public, his mom said:

"My son shot someone. He is schizophrenic. Please get the officers and ambulance here now. He's got a loaded gun," Disario's mother told police, according to a 911 recording.

Pasco County Sheriff's Office deputies arrived at the scene promptly.

Body cam footage showed one of the officers asking Disario to show his hands, rather than comply with the officer, Disario shot at the deputies, who then returned fire, officials said.

Disario began walking toward a school, a few hundred feet away and the school was immediately placed on lockdown.

A shootout between Disario and officers at the scene ensued. Afterwards, Disario went back into his home and killed himself

During a news conference, Sheriff Chris Nocco said:

"The deputies made a conscious decision to do anything they had to do to protect those kids in school and protect the community."Probably moments before this they were driving on patrol and doing what they had to do and seconds later, they're in a life-and-death situation, putting their lives on the line."

WFLA reported that a robot was sent inside the home, where it found Disario dead.

Nocco said Disario had an AR-15 rifle and .22 caliber rifle. It was not immediately clear how he obtained the guns.

The deputies involved in the shootout were placed on administrative leave while police investigated the incident.
