The younger brother of the former Algerian president, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, has been jailed for two years.

Said Bouteflika was accused of obstructing the course of justice.

He was sentenced alongside the former justice minister, Tayeb Louh, and a businessman, Ali Haddad.

Mr Louh will serve six years while Mr Haddad will be in jail for two years.

Ex-inspector general of the ministry of justice, Tayeb Belhachemi was also sentenced to two years in prison.

All the accused were detained after President Bouteflika was forced from office in 2019.

The former president died last month, eight years after suffering a debilitating stroke.

The prosecution had called for seven years’ jail for Said, who was charged for “abuse of office”, “inciting the falsification of official documents”, “obstruction of justice” and “contempt of court”.

The court though acquitted six other defendants.

Said Bouteflika, 63, was arrested in May 2019 and sentenced to 15 years for “plotting against the state and the army” during the final days of his brother’s rule.

On January 2, he was acquitted of those charges by a military appeals court, but was handed to a civil court to face trial on corruption charges, AFP reported.

Ghana: Use of presidential villa for marriage ceremony sparks debate – The Maravi Post

Published

Some Ghanaians have taken to social media to criticize the use of the presidential villa to host the marriage ceremony of a daughter of their President Nana Akufo Addo.

The president’s daughter Edwina Akufo- Addo got married to Kwabena Jumah, son of a stalwart of the ruling party, Maxwell Kofi Jumah last weekend.

The low profile event has been a subject of controversy after pictures and videos of the event went viral.

In a statement, pressure group Alliance for Social Equality and Public Accountability (ASEPA) said although there is no law that bars the president from hosting the marriage ceremony of his daughter at the villa, it leaves much to be desired.

“Even though there exist no specific regulations on the use of the Presidential Villa by Presidents, using the venue for such a private/personal family function of the President puts that ceremony at the same pedigree with events like the State Dinners organized for Prince Philip or Barack Obama or other Presidents when they visited Ghana and that is not only unacceptable and demeaning of the seat of Government, it also totally undermines our State Protocol system and could create a diplomatic mishap for Ghana in future” it said.

The statement questioned if the event was not financed by the tax payer as a state banquet.

“If you ask me, this ceremony could have taken place anywhere else in any of the luxurious hotels or the President’s private residence or many of the luxurious properties owned by the President’s relatives across the city.

And just like the renting of the Luxurious jet, we demand answers from Government on why the seat of Government of the Republic of Ghana has now been reduced to a wedding grounds for the President’s family members”, the statement said.

Some Ghanaians have taken to social media to criticize the decision.

Although the presidency has not commented on the development, supporters of the ruling government have described the criticism as unwarranted and baseless.
