Algerian authorities have jailed the country's last independent media voice - Washington Post

From the Washington Post on Feb. 18,2023 here is Reporters Sans Frontieres's full-page ad demanding Ihsane El Kadi's release.

Unable to silence him with intimidation, Algerian authorities have thrown veteran of independent journalism Ihsane El Kadi in prison.

Editor and writer El Kadi was arrested by military security agents in the middle of the night on Dec. 24, his media offices raided and shut down; he now sits in prison in Algiers.

An unflinching defender of free expression and human rights for 40 years, El Kadi’s talk shows and publications were the last forums for uninhibited debate and criticism in Algeria.
