Morocco urges Spain to open investigation into Polisario chief

Morocco on Saturday urged Spain to open an investigation into the circumstances of a Western Sahara independence leader's arrival in the country for medical treatment and explain its findings to Rabat.

Madrid should explain "the conditions, circumstances and connivances that led to the fraudulent entry of this person using false documents and a usurped identity," said Foreign Ministry Director General Fouad Yazourh.

Spain's decision to host Polisario Front leader Brahim Ghali without telling Rabat while using what Morocco says are travel documents provided by Algeria and a false name, has angered Rabat, which regards Western Sahara as part of Morocco.
