Algeria: Torture of Brahim Ladada and Abdelkrim Khider: Appeal case.

, Index number: MDE 28/020/2002

Brahim Ladada and Abdelkrim Khider were brutally tortured in detention earlier this year by the Algerian security forces. During their ordeal they were allegedly forced into making statements in which they confessed to having links with, on the one hand, an armed group and, on the other, an Algerian human rights lawyer living in exile in Switzerland. Amnesty International believes that both men may have been arrested and tortured because they had passed reports of human rights violations committed by the security forces to this lawyer.
