Polisario top security official Mustapha Salma Ould Sidi Mouloud was arrested on Tuesday evening by the militia of the Western Sahara’s Polisario Front upon his arrival in the border post leading to the Tindouf camps, coming from the Mauritanian territory, international media reported.

Polisario militiamen, who were on board of two vehicles, arrested Ould Sidi Mouloud, in the region of Mhiriz, before taking him to unknown destination, according to Al Arabiya sources.

Ould Sidi Mouloud had, earlier in the day, made statements addressing the international public opinion, in which he expressed determination to defend his convictions despite the state of terror the Polisario leadership seeks to impose in the camps to muzzle consciences and prevent them from proclaiming the truth.

He also urged the United Nations and all international human rights organizations to support him to preserve his right of free speech and his physical integrity.

Ould Sidi Mouloud had announced, early August in the southern city of Smara, his intention to return to the camps of Lahmada to defend Morocco’s autonomy proposal.
