Opposition figure facing military trial in Tunisia

This time the accused is Chaima Issa, a leading member of the National Salvation Front. She is charged with inciting soldiers to disobey orders, insulting the head of state, and other serious offenses. Details here, en français.

Some countries make a habit of using military trials to suppress dissent among civilians. Tunisia is near the top of the list.
