Leïla Ben Ali in 2010


  • I don't involve myself in politics, my daily life is devoted to charity and social work. Apart from that I help my loved ones to live better, that's true. I never wanted to harm anyone. I deplore the fact that people have forgotten that for 23 years their lives improved greatly … and Tunisia became a modern country. I hope that my compatriots will render me justice by remembering the journey we undertook together. I hope that in the twilight of my life I will retain my honour.
    • 1 July, 2012. [1]
  • We were certainly aware that our country was going through a difficult time.
  • Dogs howled, sensing the drama. Without Seriati(General), the president would never have left the country, it was a coup d’état … helped by secret outside influences.
