March. 28, 2011 – TAP  - Tunis appeal Court rejected today the appeal lodged as regards the dissolution of the Democratic Constitutional Rally (RCD) party, a TAP News Agency journalist reported.
The rejection of the appeal was ''expected'' since the "RCD lawyer had lodged the appeal with the court of appeal instead of the court of first instance that had passed the sentence", explained the legal representative of the Interior Ministry Fawzi Ben M'Rad.
As regards the last resort, an appeal in cassation, head of the state legal department Mohamed Moujahed Fridhi said that this is legally possible but is a mere useless formality.
The rejection of the appeal on a technicality is likely to question the cogency of the appeal, he added.
