The court of first instance in El Ayoun postponed to May 14 the trial of Laaroussi Ndour, arbitrarily detained on 2nd of May.

The photographer and editor of the Bentilli Center, one of several Sahrawi media groups in the occupied territories, who daily report and film the human rights violations in Western Sahara committed by Morocco was arrested and treated violently on Smara Avenue according to several witnesses.

This morning when he was present in court he did not have the hearing aid that he needs that had been removed by the Moroccan occupation authorities.

The trial had to be postponed since Ndour was hearing impaired.

Friends, activists and relatives went to court to show their support for the journalist and in protest of his arbitrary detention.
