PUSL.- Ali Saadoni’s mother, a Saharawi political prisoner, reported that on Monday’s visit on August 5, her son had visible scars on both hands and wrists and was handcuffed. Saadoni told his mother that he has been in total isolation since June 21 when he was transferred at 3 am from El Aaiun prison in occupied Western Sahara to Bouzakarn prison in Morocco.
In addition to being in prolonged isolation for 48 days he is handcuffed all the time.
According to Saadoni’s mother, the political prisoner was in serious health and miserable general condition and the prison administration does not provide him with the medicines he needs daily for a serious chronic illness he suffers from.
The prolonged confinement to which he is subjected to exceeds the time limit set by Moroccan law and all conventions signed by Morocco and considered to be torture by the United Nations.
