Algeria – In delivering his speech yesterday in Oran, Justice Minister Tayeb Louh unexpectedly criticized Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia, recalling in particular the case of executives and managers imprisoned during the years 90, while Ahmed Ouyahia was at the head of the government.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the National Democratic Rally (RND) responded to the voices that once again "attack" the party's Secretary General.
The RND asserts that Ahmed Ouyahia was not the Minister of Justice when the case of the imprisonment of tens, not thousands, of executives took place in the mid-1990s. this is an attack on the principles of independent and respectable judges.
The second party in power recalls, moreover, that his current Secretary General had issued two instructions in favor of the independence of justice, when he was appointed Minister of Justice. Among these provisions, the prohibition of any legal proceedings against senior management in the absence of a formal complaint by the responsible authorities concerned. Ouyahia's party notes the repeal of this provision later.
