Sahrawi government call for immediate release of Gdeim Izik Prisoners | Sahara Press Service

Bir Lehlou, July 29, 2016 (SPS) – The Government of Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) appealed Thursday to the United Nations, African Union and European Union as well as defenders of justice, freedom and human rights around the world to immediately intervene for the release of Gdeim Izik and all Sahrawi political prisoners languishing at Moroccan prisoners.

The government pointed out in a statement that these prisoners are victims of unfair terms and inhuman treatment depriving them of the simplest rights, and their only guilt was claiming their rights peacefully and demanding an end to the illegal occupation of Western Sahara by Morocco and enabling the Sahrawi people to its inalienable right for self-determination and independence.  

The statement stressed that the continuous deterioration of human rights situation in the occupied part of Western Sahara pushes Sahrawi government to demand urgently expanding the prerogatives of the UN Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO) to include the monitoring and reporting on Human rights.
