Cannabis-smoking Tunisians ‘sentenced to 30 years’

Three young Tunisian men are reported to have been sentenced to 30 years in prison for smoking cannabis at a football stadium.

A spokesperson at the regional court that delivered the sentence said that it was based on three separate laws – which include 10 years for drug consumers and traffickers and 20 years for taking drugs in a public place.

An MP has called for a presidential pardon to be issued for the three men.
