It appears that the separatist Polisario Front is experiencing a severe financial crisis that has reached the point of blackmailing a Spanish family financially, in exchange for the return of their adopted Sahrawi daughter to its embrace.
In detail, the separatist entity put pressure on the biological family of the girl, Falih Mint Chahid Mint Laaroussi, to prevent her from returning to Spain. Where she lives with her adoptive family; After a visit she made to the Tindouf camps.
This came after the armed militia asked the Spanish family for a ransom in exchange for the release of the kidnapped Faylah, but the latter refused to submit to the “Polisario” blackmail.
Faylah’s biological family tore up her travel documents, in order to force her to stay in the Tindouf camps, before the Spanish family request the assistance of q desert smuggler Hamada Ould Saleh.
On December 10, 2023, Hammada returned to Malaga (Spain) and spoke with her Spanish family. They agreed that the Spanish family would pay for Felah’s documentation, which means paying the commission to the Algerian Military Police in Tinduf, which is the safe-conduct at a cost of 2,500 euros that a Saharawi needs to be able to move around Algeria.
With the safe-conduct obtained, they took advantage of the fact that Felah, who had just come of age, 18 years old in Spain, was at a wedding and they took her out of the camps, secretly to Oran (Algeria). She is currently in Oran, in a safe house. She is awaiting the arrival of a Spanish lawyer to petition Spain through an emancipation process, since in Algeria the age of majority is reached at 19, so now Felah is still considered a minor, according to “Suite Informacion”.
Meanwhile, the Polisario, its acolytes and the family, tribe of the girl, a relative of Jira Bulahi, have threatened Louali Salem Douh and his partner Hammada Saleh Moulud, to kill their family in the camps in retaliation for having participated in a “multitude” of abductions of women in the camps.
In reality, they have contributed to the escape of many people from the precarious situation in Tindouf, where an authoritarian regime prevails and its leaders use it as a business for their own benefit, while the inhabitants of the camps suffer very precarious living conditions.
This incident must remind the international community how the exploitation of minors and children in the Tinduf camps went from forcing them to carry weapons to employing them in the financial blackmail of a Spanish family that was handed over to them, even at the expense of the strict Moroccan laws regarding adoption for Moroccans. The little girl, Falih, remains a daughter of Morocco, despite the deception of her family.
