Argelia - SNAPAP and CGATA executive member Fellah Hamoudi convicted and sentenced to three years in jail

Fellah Hamoudi, member of the Executive Bureau of SNAPAP and CGATA and president of the Office of the Algerian League for Human Rights (LADDH), was arrested on 19 February in the wilaya of Tlemcen.
Fellah Hamoudi has been continuously harassed over the past months in connection to his statements on the “Al Magharibia” television channel. The prosecutor found Hamoudi’s comments concerning the number of prisoners of conscience in Algeria offensive to the Ministry of Interior and “false or malicious”. Hamoudi was also accused of running an “unaccredited” association in connection to his position in the LADDH. His home was searched by the police on 12 January 2022, during which time his laptop and personal phone were confiscated. On 20 February 2022, the Tlemcen Court convicted him. He was fined one hundred thousand dinars and sentenced to imprisonment of three years.
The conviction of Fellah Hamoudi is one the cases from the recent wave of harassment of trade unionists. Numerous other trade union activists have been investigated by the police and prosecuted.
