Algeria Issues “Terrorism” Warrant For Exile Activists

A Court in Algeria Has Issued Arrest Warrants For Outspoken Exiled Activists – A Former Diplomat, A Blogger And A Journalist – Accusing Them Of Seeking To Turn A Countrywide Peaceful Protest Movement, Known As The Hirak, Into A Violent One.

The Warrants Come As Algeria’s Anti-Government Protesters Are Boosting Weekly Rallies Ahead Of June Parliamentary Elections. Algeria’s President Abdelmadjid Tebboune Dissolved Parliament In February As Part Of His Political Reforms.

The Warrants Target Former Diplomat Mohamed Larbi Zeitout, Blogger Amir Boukhors, Who Writes Under The Name “Amir Dz”, And Journalist Hichem Aboud.

Many Democratic Activists Have Accused Rachad Of Using Fis Former Fighters To Infiltrate The Pro-Democracy Hirak Protest Movement And Lead It To Violence.

Rachad Denied The Accusations, Saying It Seeks To Establish A “Civil State” That Complies With Democratic Norms.
