ALGIERS- President of the Republic, Abdelmadjid Tebboune, ordered the government on Sunday, at the Council of Ministers meeting, to speed up investigations into the incidents and dysfunctions reported recently and to punish their perpetrators with "the utmost firmness."

"Reacting first of all to the Prime Minister's report, the President of the Republic recalled the serious incidents and dysfunctions recorded in recent weeks like forest fires, disruption of electricity and drinking water and sudden unavailability of cash at postal centers," said the Presidency of the Republic published in a statement at the end of the meeting.

In this regard, President Tebboune urged the government to "complete the investigations carried out, to inform the population of their results, with supporting evidence, and to make sure that the perpetrators are punished with the utmost firmness," the source added.

The President of the Republic took this opportunity to inform the ministers that "arrests have just been made in connection with acts of destruction of electricity poles in the province of Bouira, as well as that of an arsonist who confessed to having deliberately set fire to the forest of Aït Laaziz in the same province," concluded the source.
