Aminatou Haidar update

She has been deported to Spain, apparently because she wrote "Western Sahara" rather than "Morocco" as her country of residence on her immigration form and refused to change it. In terms of international law she is entirely correct, but to assert that the people of Western Sahara should have their country back is in violation of the Moroccan constitution.

Deported to Spain? Does this mean that Morocco thinks the rightful rulers of Western Sahara are the former colonial power? Or did she fly in from Spain?

She flew in from Spain. The Moroccan line on the sovereignty of the Western Sahara, while completely wrong, is also completely clear!

Darn - I was trying for a bit of wry humour there and I failed completely.
