On Dec. 10, 2015, a court in Kairouan [Kirwan or al-Qayrawan] sentenced six youths from Rakkada [Raqqada] to the maximum 3 years imprisonment provided by the Penal Code’s Article 230 [Tunisia’s law against sodomy]; again, discredited anal tests were used as evidence.

The court also convicted one of the defendants of  indecent assault because his computer allegedly contained some movies deemed immoral.

More seriously, a 5-year prohibition on returning  home to Kairouan was imposed on the six, starting after the completion of their prison sentences.
