On Thursday, the Algerian judiciary condemned the Algerian football legend, Rabah Madjer, to six months in prison and a fine of about 700 dollars.
The Misdemeanors Court convicted Majer, who was appointed as an ambassador for the Qatar World Cup 2022, and won the European Champions League with Porto in 1987, and his partner, “M. Ibrahim”, on charges of false statement, while they were acquitted of the remaining misdemeanors, namely fraud, forgery and impersonation.
The court ordered that Majer and his partner pay the civil party, the Algerian Publication Agency, about $700 for all damages.
Mager and his partner were accused of illegally benefiting from advertising pages from the Algerian Agency for Publication and Advertising for a sports newspaper. Which he owned earlier months after the newspaper ceased and the company responsible for publishing was dissolved.
