In jail since March 29, Algerian journalist Khaled Drareni was sentenced on appeal Tuesday to two years in prison, which means he remains in detention, we learned from one of his lawyers, Mustapha Bouchachi .

Two years in prison for Drareni. We are going to appeal on points of law, Maître Bouchachi told AFP. His continued detention is proof of the regime's confinement in a logic of absurd, unjust and violent repression, responded Christophe Deloire, Secretary General of Reporters Without Borders (RSF), for which Khaled Drareni is the correspondent in Algeria. source: https://www.ouest-france.fr/monde/algerie/algerie-le-journaliste-khaled-drareni-condamne-en-appel-a-2-ans-de-prison-6973989
