The Algiers appeals court sentenced two ex-prime ministers of the Bouteflika era, Ahmed Ouyahia and Abdelmalek Sellal, respectively to 15 years and 12 years in prison, after an unprecedented trial for corruption, learned AFP from a judicial source.

On the other hand, it lightened sentences pronounced against former Algerian ministers and bosses, implicated in a car scandal and accused of illegal financing of the last electoral campaign of the deposed president Abdelaziz Bouteflika, according to defense lawyers.
