The last human rights NGO (LADDH) dissolved by the regime

The Algerian League for the Defense of Human Rights (LADDH) reported last weekend that a court judgment had been issued dissolving it. The Algerian human rights NGO was not even notified of the court’s decision.

“As (for) other organizations, the question of compliance with the law on associations has always been blocked and instrumentalized by the public authorities”, wrote the association in a press release.

Before her, several associations and NGOs have been dissolved or banned from operating by the Algerian authorities since the anti-democratic and authoritarian tour de force of the Algerian regime represented by Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune and General Said Chengriha.

In a press release, the LADDH indicates that the judgment was rendered by the administrative court of Algiers last September and that it was surprised to find out only recently, without being informed.

For LADDH, the only organization for the defense of human rights in Algeria which dared to reveal the failings of the Algerian regime of the “new Algeria, through unparalleled repression and civilian victims by the thousands, this dissolution of justice at the balance of power is the result of his “commitment to democracy, freedoms and human rights”.

According to the main organization for the defense of human rights in Algeria, it is a question of “continuous relentlessness (…) which takes, with this last decision, a proportion of extreme gravity” and LADDH finds itself “paying for his commitment.

According to the LADDH, the petition was filed on May 4, 2022 and the court ruled in favor of the Interior Ministry on June 29. The dissolution judgment bears the date of September 29, 2022, specifies the LADDH, which claims to have been “absent or avoided throughout the procedure which targeted it”.

In its request, the Ministry of the Interior mentioned a problem of compliance with the law, according to the LADDH, which responds by recalling that “compliance with the law on associations has always been blocked and exploited by public authorities” and that “the real members of the LADDH are part of a collective dynamic of refounding the organization and stabilizing it”.
