PUSL.- This morning the Saharawi political prisoner Ali Saadoni was released after having complied with the sentence imposed in 2016.

The well-known Saharawi activist was arrested because of his continuous and persistent peaceful struggle for self-determination in Western Sahara.

Saadoni belongs to a group of young Sahrawis who refuse to have Moroccan nationality.

During the detention period Saadoni was a victim of torture, ill-treatment, medical negligence and forced to be in a cell with infectious-contagious patients.

He made several hunger strikes in protest against this situation that were denounced to the various international bodies.

PUSL conveys to Saadoni and his family the best wishes for a speedy recovery from the physical and psychological consequences resulting from this harsh and unjust imprisonment.
