On Tuesday, August 9, Algerian influencer Numidia Lezoul was acquitted of charges brought against her in the case of swindling 75 Algerian students using the Future Gate company.
Farouk Boudjemline, known as “Rifka” and Mohamed Aberkane, known as “Stanley”, were sentenced to six months in prison and therefore released after having served their sentence.
The three were imprisoned in January 2022, following a complaint lodged by the Algerian students who were victims of fraud, the perpetrators were prosecuted for “forgery and use of forgeries”, and “money laundering and violation of the regulations governing the movement of capital”.
The owner of the Future Gate agency, Oussama Rezagui, was sentenced to 6 years in prison.
On August 3, the public prosecutor at the Court of Algiers requested 10 years in prison and a fine of one million DA against Rezagui, and a sentence of 3 years in prison and a fine of 500,000 DA against Numidia Lezoul, Rifka and Stanley.
