Three Italian aid workers engaged in cooperation activities for the CSO Cesvi in Tunisia are in custody, together with another Cesvi staff member, for alleged irregularities linked to money withdrawals from a local bank.

The Farnesina writes this in a note.

The Italians are involved in some projects in Libya where the banking system provides for a series of limitations which make it necessary - for those who need currency - periodic withdrawals of money in Tunisia. In this case, according to what we learn, it would not be a high figure.

Compatriots, underlines the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, are assured assistance by the Italian embassy in Tunis, in close coordination with the Farnesina.

The objective is the rapid release of those involved.

Cesvi is a secular and independent Italian humanitarian organization, founded in Bergamo in 1985. The NGO works around the world to support the most vulnerable populations in the promotion of human rights, and for sustainable development.
