Two former Algerian prime ministers convicted in corruption case

AlgierS: An Algerian court on Tuesday convicted two former Algerian prime ministers and other senior officials to prison in a corruption case.
Ahmed Ouyahia was sentenced to 15 years and Abdelmalek Sellal to 12 years in prison on charges of squandering public funds and abusing authority in a case related to car assembly plants.
Both premiers served under longtime president Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who was forced to step down in April in the wake of nationwide protests and pressure from the country’s powerful military.
The Sidi M’hamed Court in the capital Algiers also sentenced former industry minister Abdeslam Bouchouareb to 20 years in prison. (DPA)
