Case “Amira Bouraoui”: Algeria tries to implicate Morocco with conspiracy charges


The case of the exfiltration of the Algerian activist Amira Bouraoui to France continues to make headlines. In an absurd and frantic move, Algerian propaganda has turned its gaze towards Morocco, which it accuses of wanting to undermine relations between Algeria and France. A gesture that denotes, once again, the anti-Moroccan obsession that haunts the mind of the regime in Algiers.

The Algerian government seems determined to continue to undermine its credibility through crude and delusional propaganda. Without being concerned, Algeria wants to involve Morocco by force in the case of the activist Amira Bouraoui who was extradited to France from Tunisia without the regime’s approval. An incident that caused a diplomatic crisis between Paris and Algiers and led to the recall of the Algerian ambassador for consultation.

Instead of focusing on the substance of this case, Algerian propaganda chose to divert its gaze to Morocco, which has become the scapegoat for all Algeria’s misfortunes. The Algerian press agency (APS) published a dispatch in which it blamed the Kingdom for the deterioration of relations between France and Algeria.

The Algerian agency claimed that the exfiltration of the activist, Amira Bouraoui, would be the work of “certain officials at the level of the DGSE, the Quai d’Orsay and Franco-Algerian advisers who do not hide their love and veneration” for Morocco. By doing so, Algerian propaganda holds imaginary shadowy men responsible who are in the pay of Morocco. This says a lot about the state of mind in Algeria, where propaganda remains obsessed with conspiracy.

Indeed, this case concerns Tunisia, the country from which the activist was exfiltrated to France with the help of the French Consulate. To spare Algerian anger, the Tunisian president, Kais Saeid, has dismissed his Minister of Foreign Affairs, according to information relayed by the Tunisian press and repeated by the international media. Despite this, the APS persists in implicating Morocco in this affair to conceal the failures of the Algerian state and its inability to manage extradition cases in coordination with its partners.
