Tunisian Prime Minister Yousuf Shahed said on Monday that fighting corruption in the country is much more difficult than combating terrorism.

Shahed, who became Tunisia’s new prime minister in early August, said “the war on corruption and the war on terrorism are two sides of the same coin,” during the Arab Anti-Corruption and Integrity Network (ACINET) meeting.

“Fighting corruption through controlled mechanisms, namely accountability, is very difficult,” Shahed, who is considered to be the youngest Tunisian premier since the country’s independence in 1956, said.

He added: “It is even more difficult than fighting terrorism in some cases” since corrupt people are invisible and can blend into communities.

Last week, head of Tunisia’s Anti-Corruption Authority Chawki Tabib had called on the government to “eradicate the corruption barons,” warning of the dangers emanating from turning Tunisia into a “mafias’ state if corruption is not addressed.”
