Corruption investigation in El Tarf

El Khabar, El Watan: Governor of El Tarf is claimed to have received a "loan" of 10 million dinars from an investor, which he refused to pay back. Investigators have found a number of anomalies in the accounts and management of various government projects, including road repair and the building of a new port at El Kala. El Watan reports that an elected official, M. Belaid, who had attempted to blow the whistle on the situation two years ago had his house demolished and got sued for slander.
