llltreatment
ALGERIA: Rashid Mouhouche
Abdennour Laras
Tahar Lyazed
Moussa Djebbare
Amnesty International has learned that Rashid Mouhouche and Abdennour Laras
are no longer kept in chains following a petition by a group of Algerian lawyers to the
Algerian Ministry of Justice protesting at the conditions of restraint under which the
two prisoners on death row were kept. Rashid Mouhouche and Abdennour Laras were sentenced
to death by the criminal court in Algiers on 19 March 1991 (together with Tahar Lyazed
and Moussa Dhebbare who were sentenced in absentia) for embezzling public funds, corruption
and mismanagement,
Amnesty International welcomes the lifting of the restriction on these prisoners but remains
opposed to their death sentence.
FURTHER RECOMMENDED ACTION: Telexes/express and airmail letters:
- welcoming the lifting of the restriction on the two prisoners but continuing to express
concern about all four death sentences.
