The Farnesina reports that three Italian aid workersengaged in cooperation activities for the OSC CESVI in Tunisia, have been placed in custody in recent daystogether with another member of the CESVI staff, for alleged irregularities linked to money withdrawals from a local bank.

The three cooperators – we read in a note from the ministry – operate on some projects in Libya, a country whose banking system maintains a series of limitations which make periodic withdrawals of money necessary for those who operate there and need currency. in Tunisia. Since the beginning of the matter, it is underlined, the Italian embassy in Tunis, in close coordination with the Farnesina, has ensured assistance to its compatriots and is in constant contact with CESVI, which is providing all the necessary information to the investigating authorities to allow for a rapid clarification and arrive at a desirable, rapid release of all those involved.
