Terror Charges: Rights court backs French expulsion of an Algerian

Europe’s top rights court yesterday said France could proceed with the expulsion of an Algerian convicted of terror charges, dismissing his claim he would face torture or inhumane treatment back home.

The man, identified only as A.M., had been living legally in France when he was sentenced in 2015 to six years in prison for conspiring to commit terrorist acts, by supplying money and night-vision goggles to jihadists from Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).

He was also ordered to leave the country, prompting his appeal to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, eastern France.

But the judges found there were “no serious, proven grounds” that he risked being subjected to inhumane or degrading treatment while in Algerian custody.
