PUSL.- This morning the Saharawi political prisoners Nourdine Argoubi and Fak Jhalihenna were released after having fulfilled the sentence imposed in 2016. Argoubi and Jhalihenna were detained in Bouzakarn prison.

These Saharawi activists have been detained for their continued and persistent peaceful struggle for self-determination in Western Sahara.

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

They have carried out hunger strikes against this situation which have been denounced to varios international bodies.

PUSL conveys to these activists and their families the best wishes for a speedy recovery from the physical and psychological sequels resulting from this harsh and unjust imprisonment.
