Published 28 October 2007


Late one evening, he was told that he was to be transferred, just as he had demanded.

But he was very surprised as he arrived his new prison in Morocco. He did not arrive in Ait Melloul where he can study. In stead he got to know that he had ended up in a local prison in Taroudant. There it is not study either -just like in El Aaiun.

El Ouali's family was noticed of the transfer after it had happened.
