In recent days, Algerian media reported that the former leader of the Algerian National Liberation Front (FLN), Amar Saadani, has taken refuge in Morocco. «The fear of being extradited seems to have thrown a real wind of panic among the former personalities targeted by the Algerian justice», wrote Le Soir d'Algérie wrote on Saturday.

The newspaper reports that the «former secretary general of Algeria’s FLN and president of the National People's Assembly (...) is in Morocco».

Le Soir d'Algérie explains that Amar Saadani went to France, where he owns property, after the arrest of the former Minister of Justice, Tayeb Louh in 2019, then stayed in Portugal. But fearing to be extradited to Algeria from these two European countries, the former president of the National People's Congress opted for Morocco. 

«Reliable information indicates that the proposal to settle in this country comes from people close to the Moroccan authorities, to whom Amar Saadani has always rendered enormous services», the same source added.

It is worth mentioning that in October 2019, the Algerian politician said that «the Sahara is Moroccan».
