Rached Ghannouchi (the leader of the Tunisian Ennahdha Party and Speaker of the Tunisian Parliament) has secured the take down of three articles and a video published on various dates in April and May 2020 by Al Arab and Middle East Online.

The takedown of these materials follows Mr Ghannouchi’s win in his libel action against Middle East Online Limited in the English High Court in 2020 (dealt with in two press releases available here and here), and the subsequent settlement of separate libel proceedings which he had brought against Al Arab Publishing House Limited in respect of a substantially similar article to that which was the subject-matter of the proceedings against Middle East Online Limited (for further background, see the press release here).
