Salah Dabouz

HRD, Lawyer and President
Algerian League for the Defence of Human Rights

Salah Dabouz is a lawyer and President of Ligue Algérienne pour la Defense des Droits de l'Homme (LADDH), one of Algeria's most prominent human rights NGOs.


The lifting of Algeria’s 19-year state of emergency in early 2011 did not have a positive effect on the situation of human rights defenders (HRDs). Human rights defenders have continued to be subjected to harassment, threats, physical attacks, arbitrary detention and legal proceedings.
