The Director General for National Security (DGSN) Abdelkader Kara Bouhadba and the President of the Algerian Olympic and Sports Committee (COA) Mustapha Berraf signed a convention to fight all forms of corruption in sport

The deal is following the provisions of the Olympic Charter, the Agenda 2020, the directives of the WADA and the law 13/05 on the development of physical and sports activities.

The two organisations claim they will “unite their actions in a merciless fight against the corruption that affects the national sports sector” under the partnership, which covers doping and betting among other areas.

“The mission of the DGSN will no longer be confined to ensuring the safety of players, supporters, referees and stadiums during sports events,” the COA said in a statement.

Through the signing of this agreement, the DGSN will be directly involved in this new mission, the fight against corruption and malfeasance in the national sports environment and which undermine the sports ethics in Algeria.
