He was reportedly taken from his home by armed members of the security forces who are said to have entered his house by force, without showing any arrest warrant. His family have been given no information regarding his whereabouts or reasons for his continued detention. However, AI has received reports that he is held at the Chateauneuf Police Station in Algiers and that he has been tortured.
