A TV producer, Youcef Goucem, who used to work with an Algerian media organization, Dzair TV, has died. Youcef had set lit himself up with fire two weeks back, after the owner of the organization he worked for refused to pay his wages.
The 61 years old allegedly poured inflammable substance on his body while at work, yelling that he has been owed some money since 2017.
Youcef’s incident promptly invoked criticisms. Television station workers in Algeria began to explain the level of “anxiety” that comes with the job.
Although he had been under intensive care since he burned himself, Youcef has eventually given up the ghost as a result of the burns.
