MADRID/BARCELONA, 19 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The CUP has denounced on social networks the "arbitrary" expulsion of the leader of the Islamic community and activist from Reus (Tarragona) Mohamed Said Badaoui, whom the National Police accuses of being a danger to national security for participating in "pro-jihadist" activities. such as recruiting vulnerable minors of Moroccan origin.
"A flagrant violation of Human Rights committed by the Spanish State arbitrarily expelling the resident of Reus Mohamed Said Badaoui," the CUP said via Twitter.
Police sources have informed Europa Press that Mohamed Said, a prominent leader of the Islamist community in Catalonia, is already in Morocco after being interned until his expulsion in a center for foreigners. He was arrested on October 19 and, during his stay in a CIE, he has received visits from NGOs and human rights associations.
After his arrest, ERC, CUP, Junts and Unidas Podemos-En Comú Podem denounced that Mohamed Said is a victim of "political repression through the Aliens Law". Hence, they urged the Generalitat of Catalonia to "activate all administrative, legal and diplomatic tools to ensure their rights."
However, the Contentious-Administrative Chamber of the National Court (AN) rejected last Thursday, October 20, to suspend the expulsion of Mohamed Said, whom the Police profile as "one of the main references in Spain of the most salafist orthodox", responsible for the "increase in radicalism in the Tarragona region because of his speech".
