United Nations demands Algeria to explain its campaign against Protestant churches

The United Nations Human Rights Council (UN HRC) has increased its pressure on Algeria, asking its government to clarify how it is treating the Protestant Christian minority.

A letter signed by three UN HRC special rapporteurs (freedom of religion and belief, freedom of peaceful gathering and association, and of minorities) was sent in December 2020 to the President of the government of Algeria asking for “detailed information” about the closing of Protestant worship places around the country.

Now the United Nations has made the letter public.
