Algerian journalists held for working for French TV without accreditation

first_img“We call for the immediate and unconditional release of Moncef Aït Kaci and Ramdane Rahmouni,” said Souhaieb Khayati, the director of RSF’s North Africa desk. “The provisional detention of these two journalists follows that of RSF’s own correspondent, Khaled Drareni, who has been held for the past four months and is due to be tried on 3 August. It speaks to a vicious cycle of repression in Algeria, in which new, equally arbitrary, measures serve to mask previous ones.” AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa Activities in the fieldCondemning abusesProtecting journalistsOnline freedomsMedia independenceProtecting sources ImprisonedImpunityInternetFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment July 30, 2020 Algerian journalists held for working for French TV without accreditation The two journalists were placed in provisional detention yesterday by an investigating judge in the Algiers district of Bir Mourad Raïs. April 29, 2021 Find out more News When reached by RSF, Kaci’s lawyer, Omar Baahmed, said the case was politically motivated. “These two journalists have been deprived of their freedom because they are news providers,” he said. “Their journalistic work is the sole reason for the judicial proceedings against them.” Algeria is ranked 146th out of 180 countries and territories in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. Reporters for foreign media must be accredited in Algeria. But in a letter posted on the Casbah Tribune news website yesterday, shortly before his arrest, Kaci reports that he complied to the letter when the authorities told him he could “no longer work without accreditation.” He says he ceased to be France 24’s correspondent “because I no longer worked in the field, because I complied with the instructions.” Organisation Help by sharing this information May 12, 2021 Find out more AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa Activities in the fieldCondemning abusesProtecting journalistsOnline freedomsMedia independenceProtecting sources ImprisonedImpunityInternetFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment Newscenter_img Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the immediate and unconditional release of Moncef Aït Kaci, an Algerian journalist working for the French TV news channel France 24, and his cameraman and producer colleague, Ramdane Rahmouni.

Rugby Cranes off to Zimbabwe

first_imgRugby Cranes have this morning set off for Harare where they will face off with the Zimbabwe Sables in the Rugby Afrique Tier 1A.The Cranes honestly are counting their chances; Zimbabwe was humiliated by Kenya 61-15 while we lost to Namibia at home 40-31 in an epic encounter.Namibia last weekend embarrassed a resurgent Kenya with a 56-21 scoreline, much to the regret of the Cranes as we literally threw away our game against the African champions.On the back of that performance, the Cranes are in a buoyant mood to upstage the Sables on home soil; reason being, it is the one honest chance they have of staying in the elite Tier 1A. It is unlikely we shall beat Kenya at home next weekend.
