Tunisia's former President, Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali, died on Thursday following a long battle against cancer. Among the Tunisian people, the memory of the man who ruled the country for 23 years before being ousted in 2011, triggering the Arab Spring movement, is decidedly mixed.
After five years of investigating cases of corruption and human rights abuses under former dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, Tunisia's Truth and Dignity Commission is concluding its mandate, though many Tunisians say there is still much more to do.
In 2014 Tunisia set up the "Truth and Dignity Commission" (IVD) which has the mandate to investigate human rights violations between 1957-2014. The first court case concerns forced disappearance of Kamel Matmati, who was arrested in 1991.
