The smear campaigns continue to affect Tunisian judges, On 11 December 2021, some pages on the social media site Facebook, claiming to support the President of the Republic, Kais Saied, launched smear campaigns against Judge Mohamed Afif al-Jaidi, a founder of the Legal Agenda- Tunisia, and a judge defending the independence of the judiciary and democracy whether according to his rich articles, or to his positions, which he does not hesitate to express through the media.

The smear campaign began immediately after the media appearance of Judge Mohamed Afif Al-Jaidy on IFM Radio (on December 8, 2021), during which he defended the independence of the judiciary and denounced the interference of the President of the Republic in the judiciary, for which he had published an article on the website of the Legal Agenda, a few days earlier denouncing the interference of the President of the Republic in the Court of Accounting. Article entitled “New intervention for Saied with voice and image: Power to the people and the rest functions.”

This campaign comes in the context of a recent smear campaign of judges that has been carried out through several pages, combining only one thing: their claim to support President Kais Saied.
