Algeria prepares law to strip terrorists of nationality

Algeria is preparing a law which would strip the nationality of its citizens who join, finance or glorify a terrorist organisation abroad.

The justice minister outlined the proposed changes during a cabinet meeting, reports the state-run news agency APS.

“The new law would remain compatible with international conventions and guarantee the right to appeal”, Reuters news agency quotes the prime minister Abdelaziz Djerad‘s office as saying.
