ALGERIA TO LAUNCH NATIONAL WARNING PLAN ON ABDUCTED CHILDREN

ALGIERS, -- Algeria will launch a national warning plan each time a case of a child being abducted is reported in one of the provinces of the country, according to an instruction sent by Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal to several ministries, the security forces and public institutions.

The "Children abduction warning" plan was developed and set up by a multi-sectoral working group set up in January under the Ministry of Justice, in accordance with the Prime Minister's directive issued on Jan 18, 2016.

Detailed in a scheme attached to the instruction, the plan was developed in a collaborative framework and defines the role of each State institution in tackling such abductions.

"Under the direction of the Public Prosecutor, all concerned public institutions, public media, advertising media, mobile (phone) operators, ports, airports, stations .... will be asked to relay the warning in a pre-established synergy so as to help find the child in danger alive in the shortest possible time."

Sellal gave instructions to all involved parties "to take personal responsibility to implement this warning plan with due emergency and rigor given the importance of this issue, together with the relevant judicial authorities".
