Spanish Judiciary Reopens A Case Related To Crimes Against Humanity Targeting Polisario Leader Brahim Ghali
Many of Ghali's victims are now demanding his arrest and trial.
Spanish News Agency EFE reported that Judge of the Spanish National Court, Santiago Pedraz, decided yesterday, Tuesday, to reopen a file related to crimes against humanity targeting the leader of separatist Polisario Front, Brahim Ghali.
This is a case that was brought to light in 2008, following a complaint filed by the Sahrawi Association for the Defense of Human Rights (ASADEDH), regarding genocide, assassination, arbitrary detention, torture, enforced disappearance and terrorism.
EFE stated that Ghali was summoned on June 1st to respond to another complaint filed against him by blogger and rights activist Fadel Barika on charges of arbitrary arrest, torture and crimes against humanity.
Leader of the Polisario separatists was admitted to a Spanish hospital, under mysterious circumstances, with a forged Algerian identity.
Many of his victims, who have lodged numerous complaints against him, are now demanding his arrest and trial.
