Fear of torture

ALGERIA : Nouamane Meziche (m), aged 35, joint Algerian and French national

22 February 2006

Nouamane Meziche was presented to the judicial authorities in the capital, Algiers, in the morning of 19 February
2006, 45 days after he was arrested. He has been charged with « belonging to a terrorist group operating abroad »
and remanded in custody. He is no longer thought to be at risk of torture.

Nouamane Meziche was arrested by border police at Houari Boumediene airport on 5 January, having arrived on a
flight from Germany. Between 7 January and 19 February, his family did not have any news of him. He is believed to
have been held at a detention centre in Hydra, Algiers, which is operated by the intelligence agency Department for
Information and Security, Departement du renseignement et de la securite.

No further action is required from the UA network. Many thanks to all those who sent appeals.
