A right lost in time

Some of the accusations currently hanging over the Tunisian justice system include the delay in ruling on cases and the continuous postponement of the restitution of rights to their holders in a never-ending cycle of procedures whose duration remains unspecified, thus undermining the effectiveness of justice for litigants and shaking their trust in it.

"Nothing can impede justice like slowness", declared Ahmed Souab, Lawyer and former Judge about the impact of lengthy judicial procedures on litigants.

Those involved in the justice system blame that on multiple factors that have not been reformed, despite the compelling need to achieve effective justice for all citizens.

In the first session of "On the brink of Justice" podcast, you will listen to judges and lawyers who all have a common understanding of the reasons behind the length of judicial proceedings, which are often represented in the preliminary procedures that require sufficient time to gather the necessary evidence as well as in the lack of human resources in relation to the number of existing case files.

On the brink of Justice

Through the "On the brink of Justice" podcast, consisting of six episodes, we delve into the facts and realities of the judicial system and its relationship with the citizens and the executive branch. From there, we examine the length of litigation, infrastructure, the Code of Criminal Procedure, and the relationship between judges and law enforcement. The podcast will also address the recent dismissals of certain judges and the publication of new texts covering the functioning of the judiciary, such as the new constitution in its fifth chapter, which deals with the judicial function and the law on criminal reconciliation.

Latest episodes

A judiciary under control

In the sixth and final session of the "On the brink of Justice" podcast, Kais Saied's legislation on the judiciary will be put on trial, where we will discuss its relevance to the real problems of the judicial system and the extent to which it ensures its independence.

Unsubstantiated dismissals

The dismissal of 57 judges has sparked a public outcry and backlash in the country. The decision was deemed unfair and based on misleading security reports. In this session, we point fingers at Presidential Decree No. 2022-516, as we examine its background and details.

Unintended justice

In the fourth episode of the "On the brink of Justice" podcast, we point the finger at the relationship between judges and law enforcement officers. In this session, we try to better understand this relationship which raises questions about whether it is a utilitarian one.


Inkyfada Podcast is the first platform entirely dedicated to original Tunisian podcasts, and was conceived by Inkyfada media in collaboration with the in-house research and development laboratory, InkyLab.
Inkyfada joined the global podcast boom in 2017, when the team produced the first Tunisian audio documentary, diving deep into the belly of the El Kamour struggle taking place in the desert.
Since then, Inkyfada Podcast has produced a wide variety of documentaries, investigations, and podcast series, as well as articles accompanied by music; covering a multitude of contemporary issues in order to offer an immersive and alternative podcast experience.
Whilst exclusively offering audio content, the Inkyfada Podcast team upholds the same core values and principles of inkyfada.com, and is committed to producing high quality content though a dynamic and meticulous production process.
In addition to the permanent team, Inkyfada podcast works closely with various journalists, artists, illustrators, musicians and other content creators in order to diversify the platform and support artistic creativity.
These podcasts differ from traditional radiophonic content in that the applied production and editing process is more akin to cinematographic techniques, in addition to being web-based, downloadable and accessible on demand.
Additionally, Inkyfada Podcast uniquely offers subtitles in French, Arabic and English for all audio content, the majority of which is recorded in Tunisian or in the preferred language of the speaker in question.
