Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2011-01-24

The owner of Tunisia's leading private channel, Hannibal TV, was released Monday after his arrest a day earlier for treason for allegedly inciting unrest and working for the return of ousted leader Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali.

AFP - The owner of Tunisia's leading private television station Hannibal TV said on Monday that he had been released and that an accusation of "high treason" against him had been lifted.
             
"There is no longer an accusation against me.... I was accused of charges that are punishable by the death sentence but I forgive everyone," Larbi Nasra was shown telling journalists from his channel.
             
The state news agency TAP on Sunday quoted "an authorised source" as saying that he had been arrested on charges of treason for plotting to bring back Ben Ali and the channel was briefly taken off air.
