Sources at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation confirmed that they had accepted an Algerian request to transfer Brahim Ghali, 73, to a hospital in Logroño, in the Basque Country, for “humanitarian reasons”, reports the Spanish daily La Vanguardia.
Last Sunday, the Polisario leader was admitted in very serious condition to San Pedro hospital in the town of Logroño, 135 km from the capital of the Basque Country, Bilbao. He has cancer in the digestive system in the terminal phase. According to the leadership of the independence movement, he also contracted Covid-19 in Rabouni.
The admission of the leader of the separatists was made under false identity (Mohamed Benbatouch), with falsified travel documents.
