ALGIERS: An Algerian court on Thursday sentenced one-time Porto star and ex-national coach Rabah Madjer to six months in jail on Thursday for making “false declarations,” local media reported.
Madjer, who owned two newspapers, was found to have continued to bank cheques from a public advertising agency for a year after the papers were closed.
Charges of forgery and fraud were dropped.
But the 63-year-old and a co-defendant named as Brahim M. were jailed and ordered to pay 500,000 dinars ($3,435) to the national publishing and advertising agency (ANEP).
