Tunisian security forces placed a judge under house arrest for 40 days, local media reported on Saturday.
The decision against Judge Bechir Akremi came after President Kais Saied pledged to lead a campaign against widespread corruption.
It also came a day after Saied said he would “not turn into a dictator” after the arrest of two MPs on Friday, following his decision to lift their immunity when he seized control of the government this week.
