The Ministry of Energy in Tunisia announced that Minister Al-Manji Marzouq would be subjected to compulsory quarantine, upon his return, the day before yesterday, from France, where he had been stuck since the Eid al-Fitr holiday.
According to the ministry, Marzouq will continue to work remotely, from the place of the quarantine until the end, as required by the procedures.
Marzouk was forced to work remotely from the French capital, Paris, after he was unable to return due to canceling a flight. The private "Mosaique" radio said that the minister, who holds French citizenship, arrived in Tunisia on an evacuation flight following French Airlines.
The Minister of Energy was subject to widespread criticism on social media in Tunisia, because of his travel despite the closure of the borders, at a time when the authorities prevented citizens from moving between the states due to the closure procedures.
