Commenting on the assassination of Tunisian MP Mohamed Brahmi, member of People's Movement Party and of the National Constituent Assembly, the President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz stated:

"I am deeply saddened to learn of the despicable murder of our colleague Mohamed Brahmi. I condemn this assassination in the strongest terms.

I extend my most sincere condolences to his family and to the Tunisian people.

Since his youth, Mohamed Brahmi has worked for a more democratic, free and just Tunisia.

This murder, like that of his friend and comrade Chokri Belaïd, must not remain unpunished.

On a Tunisian Republic day marked by this mourning, on behalf of the European Parliament I extend our solidarity, as partner and neighbour, to all Tunisians. "
