PUSL.- Saharawi activist Mohamed Lamin Boudnani was sentenced this morning to 3 months in prison by the El Aaiun court of appeal.

At the moment the young activist is in the black prison of El Aaiun. On Friday, September 27, Mohamed Lamin Boudnani was sentenced on a false charge of “insulting a public official” by the El Aaiun court.
On 23 September Boudnani was summoned to report to the police, when he arrived he was surprised by an interrogation where he was informed that he has an arrest warrant since 2016.
This statement by the Moroccan authorities is unrealistic since Mr. Boudnani was not hidden, has the same address for several years, meets police officers and gendarmerie daily in the streets of El Aaiun and as soon as summoned he presented himself to the police.
