during my dads absence from Tunisia, i a matter of days, gaddafi cronies had given my dads name to the Tunisians!!! fortunately my dad was travelling with a British passport, so he was denied access into Tunisia, was detained for 48 hours in the airport, was not given any food until he started to demand it as he is a diabetic and needed his insulin but couldn't take it with out food!!! and managed to get a flight home eventually.
the sad part of all this is that despite the revolution in Tunisia, there are factors still communicating with Gaddafi!!! and the irony is my father was prevented from entry not because of politics but human rights!!!!!
the 'Arab spring' has a long way to gooooooo and deeeeeep cleansing of individuals is needed.
