Morocco accuses Brahim Ghali of being a “war criminal”

The leader of the Western Sahara independence movement, Brahim Ghali, will appear before a Spanish court to respond to allegations of torture and genocide made against him.

The head of the Polisario Front is currently being treated for COVID-19 in Logrono, in northern Spain. He testifies via video link with the court in the capital, Madrid.

Ghali’s presence in Spain angered Morocco, which claims rights to the former Spanish colony.

More than 8,000 Moroccans last month crossed the border into the North African enclave of Ceuta, in a move Spanish politicians say has the support of Moroccan authorities.
