The National,Monday June 27th, 2016

A FOREIGNER who went on a hunger strike by stitching his mouth at Bomana prison in Port Moresby was released last Friday with conditions.
Mohamed Dahan Ghagdali, from Western Sahara in Morocco, Africa, was released on the condition that he removed the stitches, have his fingerprints and photo taken, not to go on hunger strike again and to report to the Immigration office every Wednesday for reassessment.
His lawyer, Ben Lomai told The National that Ghagdali’s fingerprints and photo had been taken and the Immigration office would be working on reassessing his application for residency.
He was detained at Bomana prison pending the processing of his papers for deportation since August last year.
He stitched his mouth while in prison to protest the delay in processing his papers.
He is now living with his wife and children in the National Capital District.
