Women Journalists Without Chains condemns Algeria’s prosecution of journalists

Women Journalists Without Chains (WJWC) calls on the Algerian authorities to respect the freedom of the press, refrain from prosecuting journalists and stop the crackdown on journalists and digital media.

The WJWC associates itself with human rights organizations’ calls for an end to the imprisonment of journalists, and for the repeal of legal articles - included in the penal code - that allow a judge to apply a prison sentence to a journalist for “press violations”.
