ALGIERS (Reuters) – Algeria’s former national police chief Abdelghani Hamel appeared in a court on Monday as part of a probe into corruption allegations, private Ennahar TV said.

Hamel, who was sacked as police chief in June last year, is suspected of involvement in “illegal activities”, the channel said.
