A web designer from Algeria who is suing the Algerian government and a web design company in France says she went to a police station in Algier in December 2016 to report the assault she said she was subjected to.
In a statement, D.G. said she reported the assault to the police on Dec. 15, 2016.
She was held in custody for a week before being released.
Her lawyer says she told police she was sexually assaulted in the city of Algoulas in December, 2016, when she was staying at a hotel with her family.
Algies web design business, Graphique Algieres, said the company will pay D.g. more than €30,000 ($34,000) in damages and €20,000 in legal fees.
It has also said it will investigate D.gd.’s allegations.
The Algiris web design is the largest web design and design consultancy in the region, employing hundreds of staff.
AlGies website was also hacked in 2017, with about 5,000 documents released by hackers.
It is unclear whether the Algouls website was hacked again.
Algeria has the highest rate of online sexual violence in the world, according to a 2016 study from the UN.
