The administration of the Radio Algeria International has suspended the journalist Marouane Lounes; for three weeks for posting a tweet, on Twitter, in which he criticized the President, Abdelmadjid Tebboune.
Lounes has criticized the president’s video by asking: “Is the president’s video real or an artificial intelligence industry?”
Following that, Lounes clarified all he had mentioned about the video by posting: ” I saw the video on Twitter, I got doubts because it wasn’t broadcast by an Algerian media channels, I thought that there might be some manipulation by some party which led me to post my question. Besides, the president isn’t used to broadcast news on Twitter, so how such a piece of news. Minutes later, the news and the video were broadcast on TV, so I removed the post.”
