This conviction is an attempt to prevent me and other activists to continue our peaceful actions. It is a way to increase pressure on us.”

Abdelkader Kherba is an Algerian human rights defender and member of the Comité National pour la Défense des Droits des Chômeurs (National Committee for the Defence of the Rights of the Unemployed), as well as the Ligue Algérienne pour la Défense des Droits de l'Homme (Algerian League for the Defence of Human Rights).
