Algeria: Further information on incommunicado detention/fear of torture or other ill-treatment

, Index number: MDE 28/012/2006

"V" and "I", who were deported from the UK to Algeria on 16 and 17 June, were released from detention in the afternoon of 22 June and have since joined their families in Algeria. They had been held incommunicado for six and five days respectively at an undisclosed location. Amnesty International has been able to speak to both men after their release and have received some limited information from them. However, they did not wish to give further details about their treatment in detention for fear of reprisals.
