Hmad Hamad, Saharawi activist threatened with detention and victim of insults
PUSL.- CODAPSO vice-president, Hmad Hamad traveled from El Aaiun to Smara in the occupied territories of Western Sahara on Friday when he was detained at a checkpoint.
Hamad was to meet with other Saharawi activists in the town of Smara when he was detained at the checkpoint at the entrance to the City for an hour.
The agents of the Moroccan occupation authorities insulted Hamad and threatened to send him to prison. The insults and threats suffered are the result of his non-violent activity as an activist of the Saharawi cause.
After an hour of intense discussion and quick denunciation of what was happening by Smara activists on social networks, Hmad was released.
The vice-president of CODAPSO and former political prisoner is a victim of daily repression, sieges and tight surveillance, with freedom of movement limited to the minimum.
