The real source of the crisis between Morocco and Spain is undeniably the reception by Madrid of the separatist leader of the Polisario militias, Brahim Ghali, moreover under the name of Mohamed Benbatouche and who today is on the eve of being heard by the Spanish courts in the context of two investigations for “torture” and “genocide”.
Ghali’s hospitalization in Spain was marked by the seal of secrecy between Spain and Algeria, until the Moroccan services informed him of it. Since then, there has been a uproar in the fight between the two capitals to the point where the overflowing crisis has taken on a whole new aspect by becoming a little more international. Brahim Ghali is since 2016 head of the polisario and president of the SADR (self-proclaimed in 1976). The 71-year-old separatist was a henchman of the Spanish Secret Service under Franco or in other words a double agent. The newspaper La Razon unveiled some snippets in its edition this Saturday. So many paths traveled by this native of Smara. His main feats of arms, he had negotiated the release of two Spaniards kidnapped not long ago by a Saharawi terrorist group, unnamed at the time and of which “Gali” as such listed by the Francoist secret services wanted to be the representative.
This is because the fellow had joined the Spanish troops in the territorial police, from which he ended up being expelled with number 8 360, during the time of the “General Government of the Sahara.” Domestic policy. 2nd section ”, reads the header of the file of“ Gali Sidi Mustafa, alias Sidi Moh Uld Sidi Chej ”, from the Erguibat tribe, Ulab Taleb fraction; sub-fraction Ulad Ben Lansen, identified with DNI B-7248055, according to the media that had access to his police file in which his movements, interviews and other activities are listed and reviewed. From then on, the secret services of Francisco Franco kept the best eye on Brahim Ghali (Gali for close friends). Recognized by Spain as such, Franco’s services infiltrated him, he became a Samaritan and devoted himself to fundraising in Libya, Mauritania and Algeria. Moreover, the secret services of the Franco regime had deployed a vast operation, between 1971 and 1975, to know at all times what Agent Gali was doing.
They infiltrated him and succeeded in determining the sources of funding for a subversive group he was overseeing. All the annotations are done by hand and on the first page it is underlined that he is a member of the “Polisario Diplomatic Committee”. In the file, an “extract from this“ fascinating ”story is mentioned, in which it is specified that having actively participated in the incidents of June 1970 (“ Zemla Intifada ”demonstration organized by the National Movement for the Liberation of the Sahara (MLNS ) in Laayoune, as an administrative assistant in the company FOSBUCRA, he was arrested by the Spanish legionaries.
He was imprisoned in Bir Anzaran appearing under number 192 on the qualification list which means (persons suspected of “subversive activities”). Released in 1971 he experienced other arrests for other offenses, some of which were criminal. From that moment, the monitoring of his activities was continuous, in particular for his trips outside the Sahara, to Mauritania, Algeria and Libya “without authorization and for subversive purposes”. According to the fact sheet, “neighboring countries”, in particular Algeria, in the supply of funds and arms, have supported these activities without any problem. He would have had this sentence noted and recorded by one of the informants ” that he would return legally to the Sahara only when Spain had left and that he would fight against Morocco, helped in this by Algeria, because they possessed a lot of weapons “.
Today these are two scenarios that Spain is facing. Either for the Spanish Justice, we go for a sham and suddenly compromise its independence, thereby allowing the Spanish Executive to remove a sacred thorn from its heel by exfiltrating the preventer from going round in circles, or, l he other option, the one that the democratic world expects from Spain, to assume its error and allow the Spanish justice to accomplish its duty without any pressure and then Brahim Ghali will pay in consequence of his misdeeds.
