Tunisian President Kais Saied has been held fully responsible for the safety of former Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali by Ennahda.
Earlier this week, based on money-laundering allegations, Jebali was hospitalized after being arrested.
Ennahda said it holds Saied and his interior minister “fully responsible for any harm” to Jebali, in a statement given by the party.
Jebali headed the Tunisian government between 2011 and 2013 as a senior member of Ennahda.
Before Saied dissolved the country’s assembly and assumed executive authority in July of last year in a move decried by opponents as a “coup,” Ennahda was the largest party in the Tunisian Parliament.
After lawmakers held a session to revoke his measures, he later dissolved the parliament in March.
