With the continued shortage of food, the President of Tunisia declares a "war" against the monopolists

With the continued shortage of food, the President of Tunisia declares a "war" against the monopolists  While Tunisia has been witnessing for weeks the loss of many basic consumer items such as flour, oil, sugar, bread and rice, President Kais Saied declared what he described as a "war" against the monopolists of these foodstuffs, stressing that the monopoly is taking place by active action.  Tunisian President Kais Saied declared what he described as a "war" against monopolists of basic foodstuffs such as flour and sugar, after their shortage continued for weeks in local markets.  Said said in a video clip published by the Tunisian presidency on Wednesday, that it will be "a relentless war against the criminal monopolists within the framework of the law."  Said added, in a meeting with Interior Minister Tawfiq Sharaf al-Din and security leaders in the ministry, that "monopoly operations are an active act, and they seek to undermine social peace and security in society."  Saeed previously confirmed that he is working on preparing a draft presidential decree to confront monopoly in foodstuffs and the ways to distribute them, which he considers "starvation pathways." The draft includes penalties of up to imprisonment.  For weeks, Tunisia has witnessed the loss of many basic consumables such as flour, oil, sugar, bread and rice. Some shops in the capital, Tunis, hung banners calling on customers to purchase limited quantities of these materials, and dozens of citizens lined up in front of some bakeries and shops.  The Ministry of Commerce announces daily the seizure of tons of these materials, which are "illegally stored" in warehouses, coinciding with the approach of the month of Ramadan, in which consumption is increasing, according to the ministry.  At the beginning of this week, the ministry announced the confiscation of more than 900 tons of flour, rice, sugar and other materials that were illegally stored and intended for speculation.  Tunisians are increasingly afraid of losing these materials in the market, especially with the continued Russian attacks on Ukraine, because their country imports 60% of its wheat consumption from these two countries.  Saeed, who froze parliament, sacked the former prime minister and monopolized the country's authorities since last July 25, accuses political parties of orchestrating the monopoly operations.  Tunisia is witnessing a lack of stability in the political situation that has deepened the economic crisis, while the country started weeks ago preliminary and technical talks with the International Monetary Fund to obtain new financing.
