Algeria: A campaign of arrests against generals in the army

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates:-Algerian security authorities arrested five military generals and brought them to justice, and placed them under preventive detention, after the decision to remove them from their military posts on corruption charges.

The generals in the Algerian army are: Manad Nuba, former commander of the national gendarmerie, Habib Shantouf, Said Bay, Abdul Razak al-Sharif, former commanders of military zones, and Boujmaa Budwar, former director of financial services at the Ministry of Defense.

The five generals were locked up "in the case of property that is questionable about how it is acquired and corrupt."
