William Lawrence: “In Algeria, the bunker state is hardening”

The cross : How to explain this repression?William Lawrence : Some of the military forces, including some in high places, were in favor of Hirak. Subsequently, it was seen as a threat. However, Algeria is a bunker state which protects itself rather than governs. The more threatened he feels, the more he becomes bunkerized. He represses. He recently banned the Hirak marches, except in Kabylia. As always, he instrumentalizes Kabylia to divide, to convey the idea that the Kabyles are not reliable compatriots.Among the governing group, heads change regularly. Some are accused of corruption, go to jail, and then get back on their feet. Isolated people emerge from the shadows. Others like former intelligence chiefs Tewfik and Tartag remain powerful even if they are reti...

Ghali and her way out the back door

We are facing the worst diplomatic conflict in Spain in years. On one side is our Government. In the other, that of Morocco. And in the middle, a Polisario leader supervised by Algeria and accused of the murder of several Spaniards. Yesterday, at the same time that Fomento prevented the first landing of an Algerian government plane, Judge Pedraz ruled that he did not appreciate "flight risk" with respect to Ghali. It seems a contradiction, although - thinking carefully - perhaps the judge issued the order before knowing that Algeria was preparing its return. The situation is complicated. It is now up to the Government to take steps to reduce the crisis, not increase it. . Disclaime...
