In a letter sent to the national commission for the promotion and safeguarding of human rights, of which Echorouk newspaper received a copy, 158 repentants from several provinces of Algeria, have called for the intervention of President Abdellaziz Bouteflika for a straightening out of their administrative documents at the national registry office.

The latter, who had benefited from the clemency and civil concord laws in the 90’s, argue that their situation is very murky stressing that they are still, to this day, under constant police invigilation despite their formal pledge to renounce all terrorist activities.

These repentants said they are intent on integrating society in a peaceful way provided their administrative situation is normalized in accordance with the provisions of the national charter for peace and national reconciliation.

They also urged the national human rights commission to take the necessary steps to settle their civil status dilemma by notably seeing their children, born in the bush in the nineties, recorded officially at the registry office in order to give them a chance to go to school despite all the odds.
