Algeria: Incommunicado detention/Torture or ill-treatment. Algerian asylum-seeker (m), known as "X"
An Algerian asylum-seeker, known only as "X" for legal reasons, was deported to Algeria from the United Kingdom (UK) on 6 June. Since then he has been held incommunicado, and Amnesty International fears that he is in the custody of the Department for Information and Security (Département du renseignement et de la sécurité, DRS), where he is at risk of torture and other ill-treatment.
