Lazhari: Algeria’s achievements in human rights field confirms that the political will has lived up to people’s aspirations

The head of the National Council for Human Rights, Bouzid Lazhari, stressed today, Tuesday in Algiers, that Algeria’s achievements in the field of human rights confirms that the political will “has lived up topeople’s aspirations” in this field.

Lazhari explained, during his intervention on the occasion of the celebration of the 73rd anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the El-Aurassi Hotel, that the political will in Algeria “lived up to the aspirations of the people who demanded the eradication of corruption, bribery, abuse of power and other grievances.”

He added that the latest constitutional amendment “overtly referred in its preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and linked it to the people’s adherence to their rights, as evidenced in all the speeches of the President of the Republic, Mr. AbdelmadjidTebboune.”

Lazhari stressed that “the best example of human rights management is the importance granted to grey areas and the efforts made to eradicate them by guaranteeing all the rights, including the right to school, health care, transportation and other basic services.”

For her part, the Acting Resident Coordinator of the United Nations system in Algeria, Blerta Aliko, said that the slogan of human rights this year is equality, as “a special priority in light of the differences between countries and peoples that have been deepened by the Corona pandemic.”

The Special Envoy in charge of major partnerships with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Community Abroad, Leila Zerrougui, indicated that “it is not possible to achieve equality between individuals without addressing the problem of social and economic differences and discrimination between persons,”

At the conclusion of the celebration, the National Council for Human Rights awarded the Human Rights Prize for 2021 to the Mujahideen Taher Zoubiri and Youcef Al-Khatib for their fight and struggle during the glorious liberation revolution in order to achieve the most important human right, which is the right to self-determination.
