Ahmed Ouyahia, who was Prime Minister for four times, received a 15-year jail sentence and Abdelmalek Sellal, who was twice premier, was jailed for 12 years.

Both were accused of abusing authority in a car manufacturing embezzlement scandal. The court also handed 10-year prison terms to two former industry ministers, and sentences ranging from three to seven years to five prominent businessmen.
