And justice was done. As it was imposed for the wife of Begnian, wife of Pedro Sanchezn, President of the Spanish government, accused of corruption. New twist in the decision of the Spanish justice to expel a Sahrawi national, Youssef El Mahmoudi, who presents himself as a “Sahrawi activist”, fighting for the independence of his country, Western Sahara, illegally occupied and plundered by Morocco. The order given on Thursday by the National Court to send him back to the Cherifian kingdom has in fact been suspended. An intervention by the Spanish Minister of Youth and Children, Sira Rego, of the United Left, froze it. In a letter addressed to the Minister of the Interior Fernando Grande Marlaska (of the PSOE), Mrs. Rego asked to authorize on a “provisional basis the entry into Spain” of the young man “for humanitarian reasons”. In her letter, the minister considered that “the activist was persecuted for his commitment to the defense of Western Sahara. Sending him back to Morocco would put him in grave danger.” A letter that bore fruit. Youssef El Mahmoudi was able to leave Bilbao airport where he was held for about ten days. He will be presented before a judge on Monday for the examination of his asylum application. As a reminder, the Polisario representation in the Basque Country and NGOs observed a sit-in protest on Thursday in front of the headquarters of the Spanish government delegation in Bilbao. While it is common knowledge that the security services of executioner Abdellarif Hammoucji systematically torture political prisoners and independent journalists in Morocco, the cancellation of this expulsion-extradition represents a painful diplomatic slap in the face for Mohamed VI and his Makhzen.
