Man sentenced to jail for smoking during Ramadan by Noblex: 1:18 pm On Jun 13, 2017

A Tunisian court Monday sentenced to one month in prison a man who smoked a cigarette in public during the Muslim dawn-to-dusk holy fasting month of Ramadan, a spokesman said.

The man was seen smoking outside the Bizerte courthouse by a judiciary official who informed the police before they arrested him and referred him to the prosecution, the spokesman Chokri Lahmar told AFP.

There is no law against eating or drinking in public during Ramadan, but every year the issue comes to the fore in the North African country. Monday's ruling came a day after dozens of Tunisians demonstrated in the capital Tunis to demand the right to eat and drink in public during the Muslim fasting month.
