European Parliament resolution on the imprisonment of human and workers' rights activists in Algeria (2015/2665(RSP))  

The European Parliament,

A.       whereas on 28th January 2015, nine human and workers' rights activists were arrested, on 11th February they were sentenced by an Algerian Court and charged with "gathering and exercising pressure on the decisions of magistrates"


B.       whereas activists have been demonstrating on behalf of the rights of unemployed workers and against fracking


C.       whereas some activists have claimed to have been beaten by police on arrest and in certain cases, the relatives of activists have been detained without cause



D.       whereas Articles 97 and 100 and Law 91- 19 criminalise peaceful protest; whereas the Interior Ministry rarely authorises public gatherings, authorisation is necessary in order for the gatherings to be considered legal



1.        Deeply regrets that the Algerian authorities are not permitting democratic and peaceful demonstrations; recognises that unemployment and environmental issues are a common basis for collective action and public protest;


2.        Reminds the Algerian authorities of the rights enshrined in the Constitution of Algeria which allows for effective participation in political and economic life, freedom of expression, association and meeting and the right to a fair trial;


3.        Calls on the Algerian judicary to guarantee the right to a fair trial and calls for the immediate release of any human rights or worker's rights activists;


4.        Calls for the Algerian authorities to repeal all elements of the penal code that criminalises peaceful protest notably Articles 97 and 100 and Law 91-19; stresses that to criminalise peaceful protests is in contradiction to Algeria's Constitution and with the principles of democracy;


5.        Demands that the Algerian judicial services stop all acts of harassment against activists and their families; deplores in the strongest terms acts of police brutality


6.         Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council, the Commission and to the People's Democratic republic of Algeria
