Captured on the 26th of Ramadan, the Sahrawi was subjected to interrogations from dawn until evening while fasting Ramadan, unable to speak due to thirst.

The former detainee claimed to have been taken to Al Rachid prison which resembles that of Abou Ghraib, claiming that it is the Algerian junta which controls it. “No one canapproach, photograph it or discover its dangerous truth and reveal it to theinternational public opinion»did he declare.

The cell, underground, describes the Sahrawi, was only one meter high and one and a half meters wide, so narrow that he could not guess when the jailer opened it to take him out and torture him.

The Algerian agents and soldiers on the spot shouted at him as soon as he arrived and that the bandage on his eyes be lifted, according to his testimony: “Raise your head you dirty dog»before a flood of insults were addressed to him.

“I told him, pointing to him, you are the National Vandalism Front which caused a million and a half corpses» to provoke it. “My answer in this way cwas for thathe kills me because I knew full well that death would be kinder to me than the torture thatwaitedt and that would lead me to death in the end»he explained, pointing out that several of his friends have experienced this tragic end.
