Algerian TV network director files defamation case against independent journalists | Global Voices

Two Algerian journalists were released from detention on November 8, after spending more than two weeks behind bars on defamation charges.

Police arrested Abdou Semmar, the editor-in-chief of Algérie Part and a former Global Voices contributor, along with one of the site’s journalists, Merouane Boudiab, on October 23. The arrests came after Anis Rahmani, the director of the privately-owned Ennahar TV, filed a defamation complaint against them. Another complaint was filed by the governor of Algiers, Abdelkader Zoukh.
