African independence leader to face war crimes investigation in Spain

The Minister of Foreign Affairs – Arancha Gonzalez Laya – has said that an independence leader from the Western Sahara who is currently undergoing medical treatment in Spain will face possible legal charges in the coming days.

Polisario Front leader Brahim Ghali arrived in Spain from Algeria last month for medical treatment. His arrival in Spain triggered a diplomatic dispute which is connected to the relaxation of border restrictions from Moroccan authorities last week with the Spanish enclave of Ceuta.

Mr Ghali faces a series of summons from the High Court on charges of war crimes, which he will face once recovered from ill health.
