Intro: “If the opportunity arises, I will try my luck again”. Mohamed Aziz Khelili, one of the survivors of the wreck of an illegal immigrant boat following a collision with a frigate on October 8, once again himself sinking into the despair.
“Since the accident and the wave of media coverage, I have been allowed only one passage in front of the military court and testimonials for the media. In court I gave my testimony of facts and that’s it. My life since this accident has stopped. Before this attempt I had a small hope thanks to my studies. But even with a degree, there is no chance of getting a job in Tunisia. For the moment, I do nothing, “assured Mohamed Aziz.
