"Mr President, as regards Algeria, we are talking about a country where the state of emergency was lifted in 2011. However, there are still serious human rights violations with regard to the freedom of expression, the freedom of association and the freedom of assembly. Unauthorised demonstrations are still equated to ‘illegal gatherings’ and participants can be taken to Court and can be sentenced to prison for terms ranging from 2 months to 5 years. This is why we strongly condemn the arrests and ask for the immediate release of all human rights defenders and activists that have been jailed, including the ones who were protesting against shale gas operations. The geographical importance of Algeria makes stability and the full respect of human rights even more essential as the country can be fundamental to guaranteeing political stability in the whole North African region. This is a historical moment in which it is necessary to have proper certainties in that area."@it2
