Speak out for Algerian Christians' right to believe

On 25 May 2011 Karim Siaghi from Oran, Algeria, was sentenced to five years in prison and fined 200,000 Algerian dinars (approx. £1,700). His appeal was finally heard mid-November 2012 but a verdict has still not been reported.

On 22 May the Governor of Béjaïa Province, Algeria, ordered all churches of the Protestant Church of Algeria in his area to close. February 2013 saw another believer given a hefty fine for sharing the Gospel. A further violation of Algerian Christians' right to freedom of religion is Ordinance 06-03, a law regulating the religious activities of non-Muslims. Read about the issues and campaign so far »
