In a statement to the "reference", Jarad added that the General Union of Students will expose the Brotherhood's crimes to the people.

He added: We do not know who filed the complaint against us, but it is related to the documentary film that tells the story of the black room at the Ministry of Interior, which the judiciary has proven its existence, but does it make sense in this country to consider journalists with suspicion because they made a movie?"

The National Union of Tunisian Journalists has supported the journalists and the director referred to the judiciary, and in a statement it expressed its support and support for them, and reminded that the publication of judicial documents in a journalistic work, after presenting them in public sessions, could not be an introduction to criminalizing dealing with these data in the media.

 The union statement express that the press team's use of data circulated in social media, and was published, on several occasions, in dozens of national and international media, should not be an excuse to track them security.

Ennahda confirmed in September 2019 that it would sue a foreign TV channel, against the background of its broadcast of the documentary film that tells the story of what was known as the movement's secret apparatus, considering that the movie aims to confuse the electoral track and stick to false accusations.
