The defense of the victims of the so-called Brahim Ghali files an urgent complaint for his arrest
Madrid – Lawyers for victims of criminal acts committed by the so-called Brahim Ghali filed a complaint with the Spanish courts on Thursday for the activation of the European arrest warrant issued against him.
The urgent complaint was lodged by the lawyers of the Sahrawi association for the defense of human rights “ASADEDH”, we learned from their office on Friday.
The leader of the separatists, it is recalled, was admitted last week to a hospital in northern Spain under a false identity and with forged papers to escape Spanish justice.
The Spanish government confirmed Thursday evening that the leader of the Polisario separatists is in Spain “to receive medical treatment”.
He was transferred to Spain “for strictly humanitarian reasons in order to receive medical assistance,” Spanish diplomatic sources told the “Europapress” news agency and the “La Vanguardia” newspaper.
For its part, the newspaper La Rioja indicated that the so-called Brahim Ghali was admitted to the intensive care unit of the San Pedro hospital in Logrono last Sunday, adding that he was transferred by ambulance from Zaragoza and has been admitted under the name of Mohamed Benbatouch, of Algerian nationality.
The defense of the victims calls for the initiation of public action and increased cooperation from the Spanish police to interrogate Brahim Ghali in hospital, then to incarcerate him in accordance with the arrest warrant issued against him.
