Families of Gdeim Izik prisoners denounce expulsion of French activist Claude Mangin

El Aaiun (Occupied Territories), October 23, 2016 (SPS) – The Committee of Gdeim Izik Prisoners Families condemned Saturday the expulsion of French activist Claude Mangin by Moroccan authorities, in a statement. 

The Committee expressed its full support to the wife of Sahrawi political prisoner Naama Asfari, human rights activist Claude Mangin.

The statement stressed that her expulsion comes at a time the political prisoners of Gdeim Izik experience hard conditions isolated from the outside world, under strict procedures and racist practices by the prison administration.

The statement denounced all repressive and racist practices against the prisoners of Gdeim Izik and their families along the past years, especially following their transfer to Alargat prison in the outskirts of the Moroccan city of Salé.  (SPS)
