Algerian Court Convicts 2 Ex-prime Ministers of Corruption

Tuesday, 10 December 2019 05:38 AM EST

ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) — Two former Algerian prime ministers have been convicted of corruption-related charges in a landmark trial.

An Algerian court pronounced the verdict Tuesday against Ahmed Ouyahia and Abdelmalek Sellal.

Ouyahia was sentenced to 15 years in prison and $16,000 in fines. Sellal was sentenced to 12 years in prison and $8,000 in fines. They were accused of abusing authority in a car manufacturing embezzlement scandal.

Both served under long-time President Abdelaziz Bouteflika. Protesters pushed out Bouteflika earlier this year in part because of anger at corruption.
