Algeria: Amnesty granted for crimes of the past

A referendum on 29 September approved the Charter for Peace and National Reconciliation proposed by President Bouteflika. The Charter grants a general amnesty for grave human rights abuses, grants pardons to members of armed groups convicted or detained for actively supporting terrorism and exempts from prosecutions those involved in networks supporting terrorism if they submit information on their activities to the authorities.
