The Turkish authorities have extradited Guermit Bunuira, a senior Algerian army official who fled in December 2019 after the death of the former chief of the Armed Forces, Ahmed Gaid Salá, and who has been accused of disclosing state secrets.

Bunuira had fled Algerian territory after allegedly revealing classified information about the army after the death of Gaid Salá, whose adjutant he was, the Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah said.

He has been accused of disclosing confidential information to foreign activists and of movement and military code data that could result in a death penalty under the Algerian Penal Code.
