Algeria sentences two ex-prime ministers

In a landmark trial, An Algerian court convicted two former prime ministers over corruption-related charges.
Ahmed Ouyahia, who was prime minister four times, took a 15-year jail sentence and Abdelmalek Sellal, who was twice premier, was imprisoned for 12 years. They dismissed all charges, including “misappropriation of public funds, abuse of power and granting undue privileges”.

The court in Algiers also delivered 10-year prison terms to two previous industry ministers, and judgments ranging from three to seven years to five prominent businessmen.
