There appears to be no legislation in place in Algeria which prohibits slavery although Article 8 of the 1996 Constitution states that institutions have the objective of “the suppression of exploitation of man by man”. The 2009 Criminal Code also criminalises slavery when committed as a part of human trafficking under Section 5, Article 303(4).
There appears to be no legislation in place in Algeria which prohibits institutions and practices similar to slavery.
There appears to be no legislation in place in Algeria which prohibits servitude, although the 2009 Criminal Code criminalises servitude when committed as a part of human trafficking under Section 5, Article 303 (4).
There appears to be no legislation in place in Algeria which prohibits forced labour although the 1996 Constitution establishes the “suppression of the exploitation of man by man” as one of its objectives in article 8 and prohibits institutions from establishing “relations of exploitation and bonds of dependency” in article 9. The Algerian Labor Law provides protection for workers, but does not specifically prohibit forced labour.
Provisions related to trafficking in persons are found in the 2009 Criminal Code which criminalises trafficking in persons under section 5, article 303(4).
