PUSL, May 20, 2019 .- According to the information by Equipe Media the trial of the Saharawi activist and journalist of Equipe Media, Nazha Khatari El-Khalidi has been postponed until June 24.
The delay of the proceedings against El Khalidi was justified by the court with the need to further inspect the contents of Ms. El Khalidi’s mobile phone that was confiscated by the police early December of last year.
