Sahrawi civilian prisoner Brahim Dedi Ismaili initiates warning hunger strike at Ait Meloul 2 prison

Ait Melloul (Morocco), 27 September 2020 (SAPS) - Sahrawi civilian prisoner, Brahim Dedi Ismaili, who is serving an unjust and harsh life imprisonment sentence at the local prison of Ait Meloul 2, in the suburbs of the Moroccan city of Agadir, initiated on Friday a 24-hour warning hunger strike, said the Association for the Protection of Sahrawi Prisoners, citing family sources.

This protest comes as an expression on the part of the Sahrawi civilian prisoner to condemn all forms of deliberate racial discrimination against him by the prison administration, as he prevented from making phone calls as a basic and declared right.

The Sahrawi civilian prisoner held the General Administration of the Moroccan occupation prisons and the prison administration officials fully responsible for the health safety of all Sahrawi civilian prisoners within the Gdeim Izik group, who are in the same prison, due to the policy of negligence and indifference practiced against them, especially after allocating a neighborhood to treat those infected with the Coronavirus pandemic, where they are quarantined, the same source added. 

Sahrawi civilian prisoner, Brahim Dedi Ismaili, is in the local prison of Ait Meloul 2, the suburbs of the Moroccan city of Agadir, under an unfair and harsh sentence of life imprisonment, following an unjust trial that lacks guarantees and fair trial standards, staged in the Moroccan city of Salé, with the testimony of significant international organizations concerned with human rights such as Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, due to his peaceful participation in the mass exodus of Sahrawi camps of Gdeim Izik region, east of El-Aaiun the occupied capital of Western Sahara, it should be recalled.
