The travel operator Tui has reached a settlement “without admission of liability or fault” with survivors and relatives of British tourists killed in the 2015 Tunisia beach terror attack, the company and the law firm representing victims said.

Seifeddine Rezgui killed 38 people, including 30 Britons, at the Riu Imperial Marhaba hotel complex on the Sousse coast, with dozens more injured, on 26 June that year.

A joint statement from Tui and the law firmIrwin Mitchell, which is representing more than 80 people, said: “The tragic events of 26 June 2015 in Tunisia shocked and devastated us all and changed the lives of those affected for ever. Tui has always expressed heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of those caught up in the terrorist attack that day and continue to extend deepest sympathy.

“The claimants have fought tirelessly to understand how the attack happened and to seek to ensure that lessons have been learned so that other families are not affected by similar tragedy.

“Tui has worked collaboratively with the claimants and their representatives, Irwin Mitchell, to reach a settlement without admission of liability or fault and in recognition of the wholly exceptional circumstances of the case, and in the hope that it will go some way to assisting the claimants.

“Tui appreciates how difficult it must be to move on from such a horrific incident but hopes today will provide the opportunity for those affected to start to do so.”
