Letter to Algerian Minister of Justice on Freedom of Association Rights

The ABA Center for Human Rights wrote to the Algerian Minister of Justice expressing concern over the overly broad use of Algeria's penal code against peaceful protestors. The letter claimed that criminal sanctions for the alleged activities of the protestors may violate these individuals’ rights to freedom of expression, association, and assembly. 

Read the letter in both English and بالعربية.
