23 Jan. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Algerian League for the Defense of Human Rights (LADDH) has confirmed that the Algerian authorities have ordered its dissolution and has denounced an “instrumentalization” of justice by the “public authorities” of the African country.
The agency has indicated through its account on the social network Facebook that it has been able to confirm “the authenticity of a document that circulates on social networks by third parties, in an intriguing and illegal way, related to an order of an administrative court of Algiers on the dissolution of the LADDH”.
Thus, it has detailed that the Algerian Ministry of the Interior submitted this request in May 2022 and added that “the court ruled in favor on June 29 of that same year.” “The ruling that orders the dissolution of the LADDH has September 29 as the date,” he said.
“The LADDH was absent or was avoided throughout the process against it,” he pointed out, while denouncing that “like other organizations and political parties, it pays for its commitment, along with millions of Algerians, in the movement peaceful Hirak”.
The organization has thus made reference to the pro-democratic demonstrations that broke out in 2019 against the intention of the then president, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, to run for a new term and that have continued since then against his successor, Abdelmayid Tebune.
The LADDH has highlighted its commitment to “democracy, freedoms and Human Rights”. “Always, the LADDH, whose history is confused with that of the nation, has been subjected to ostracism and has been combated by the public powers,” he explained in his statement.
“It has always resisted and will continue to resist. The LADDH denounces the continuous relentless attacks, including this latest decision, which is extremely serious,” he noted, while revealing that “it will study this sentence and assert its rights for all legal and legitimate means at their disposal.
The LADDH, the main body for the defense of Human Rights in the African country, was founded in 1985 and received authorization to operate in 1989. The body has been critical of the repression of protests and the banning of various organizations in recent years. years.
