EU halts deportation of Algerian radical preacher El Hadi Doudi from France


An intervention from the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has halted, this week, the deportation of notorious radical Salafist hate preacher Imam El Hadi Doudi from France to his native Algeria.


The 63-year-old hate preacher was to be sent back to Algeria, on Tuesday, however, the ECHR contacted the French Interior Ministry, requesting few days so as to review his case before the deportation.


Imam El Hadi Doudi is well-known in Marseille for his extremist views and radical sermons and many had called for his expulsion from France in the past.

According to Doudi’s lawyer Nabil Boudi, the ECHR suspended his client’s deportation under article 39 which allows the ECHR to interfere in cases where harm may come to an individual. Mr. Boudi said that he had sent requests claiming that his client may be subjected to torture if sent back to Algeria.

Doudi, who serves as the imam for the As-Sunna mosque in central Marseille, has been accused of stoking up hatred against a number of groups including Jews, Shiites, women, and adulterers.
