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.

El Aaiun / Occupied territories. The activist and human rights defender Sultana Jaya is at home after an assassination attempt committed by a group of police from the Moroccan occupation administration in the Saharawi city of El Aaiun. Several Sahrawi media this Friday have echoed this news. Sultana Jaya last Thursday was participating in the peaceful protests to which the Sahrawi population was summoned by the Saharawi social and human rights movements to denounce the plundering by Morocco of the natural resources of the occupied territories of Western Sahara during the visit of a delegation of the European Commission.
The activist still does not have the strength to speak, she is convalescing in her house. Her sister is the one who attended the Saharawi information activists who visited her today at her home. Her body is clearly full of bruises, due to the blows to which she was subjected in an alley where she was forcibly taken by a group of Moroccan police agents when they were dispersing the Sahrawi protesters on the main avenue of the city, avenue Smara.
