Alexandre Djouhri (born February 18, 1959) is a French businessman. In 1981 Djouhri was arrested for armed robbery of a jewelry store but was later released due to lack of evidence.[1]

Djouhri lives in Geneva, Switzerland, where he is on the board of a directors of a water treatment and alternative energy company.[2] Les Échos has described him as a longtime, "important intermediary" in French foreign relations with North Africa.[3]

In the 1990s, Djouhri became an associate of Michel Roussin and, through him, met Jacques Chirac.[1] He was later a confidante of Nicolas Sarkozy and was arrested for questioning over allegations of Libyan influence in the 2007 French elections.[4]
