Sonatrach’s New CEO: the victim intellectual and 30 years in prison after fake trial   



Abdelmoumen Ould Kaddour, was convicted in November 2007 over “disclosing information top secret information” by the military court of Blida. However, and according to reliable sources, no clear evidence has been presented during his trial, Alg 24 reported Monday.

The new elected CEO of Sonatrach, graduated from the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States of America in 1979 (specialized in chemical) engineering  he acted as President of Brown & Root-Condor (BRC), a joint-stock company “Algeria –US”, of which Sonatrach held 51% of the shares headquartered in Algiers.

The whole story began when Ould Kaddour refused to provide detailed information to a former DRS (intelligence agents) construction plans of the new headquarters of the Energy Ministry; as BRC company was in charge of building the ministry’s siege.

The agent has already asked the former Energy Minister, Chakib Khalil, who has refused to give him the plants because this needs an official authorization from the President of the Republic.

According to a well-informed source, this was the reason why the former DRS, led by General Toufik, accused the BRC’s CEO of espionage and presented him to the military court without proofs.

After all of that Ould Kaddour was sentenced to 30 months in prison.

However, what is unknown until now was that Ould Kaddour had been released six months later,

With no document in hand regarding his sentence to prison neither a clear reason of being jailed for such long period of time.
