On 8 July 2019, human rights defender and lawyer Salah Dabouz started an open-ended hunger strike in protest at the judicial harassment he has been facing since 9 April 2019.

Salah Dabouz is a prominent Algerian human rights defender and a defense attorney representing several activists across Algeria. Salah Dabouz previously served as the President of the Ligue Algérienne pour la Défense des Droits de l’Homme (Algerian League for the Defence of Human Rights, LADDH), an independent association founded in 1985 and working on the documentation of human rights violations in Algeria committed by security services and armed groups. Salah Dabouz is also a member of the Commission on Human Rights of the International Union of Lawyers and a founding member of the Autonomous Union of Lawyers in Algeria.

On 8 July 2019, the human rights defender went on hunger strike which he started to denounce the judicial harassment against him and the subsequent rejection of all the complaints he tried to lodge with the different judicial authorities to demand justice for his clients and himself.

Salah Dabouz was arrested on 8 April 2019 by security forces during a meeting in a restaurant in the capital. (FRANCAIS) (FRANCAIS) (FRANCAIS) (FRANCAIS) (FRANCAIS) (FRANCAIS) (ESPANOL)
