ALGERIA – Algeria: Christian family charged with ‘inciting a Muslim to change his religion’
World Watch Monitor | Dec. 4, 2018
Four Algerian Christians appeared in court last week, charged with “inciting a Muslim to change his religion” and “performing religious worship in an unauthorised place”, reports Middle East Concern (MEC).
If found guilty they face to two to five years in prison and a fine of up to 1 million dinars (approx. US$8,700). A verdict is expected on Christmas Day.
The hearing, which took place in Bouira, in the north-eastern region of Kabylie, on 27 November, was initially scheduled for 10 October but postponed several times, as World Watch Monitor reported.
