A human rights organisation that defends victims of French nuclear tests in Algeria announced that it is preparing a judicial file to be submitted to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in response to France’s failure to respond to the Algerians’ repeated demands for compensation for the victims of nuclear explosions in the south of the country.
ICAN Algeria, which describes itself as the office that defends the interests of Algerian men and women who suffered from French heinous nuclear crimes in Algeria from 1960 to 1966 stated that France does not want to recognise the horrendous crimes it committed in Algeria.”
The human rights organisation has previously setup a digital platform to allow Algerians to submit details in the effort to file this lawsuit against the French state.
President Abdelmadjid Tebboune had stressed that Algeria will continue to demand compensation from France for the victims of the nuclear explosions.
Algerian officials have also repeatedly asked France to hand over topographic maps related to the French nuclear explosions, to help identify and cleanse the areas of nuclear radiation, but they have received no response regarding this matter.
