Sahrawi civilian prisoner on warning hunger strike in Morocco

Kenitra (Morocco), 8 January 2022 (SPS) - Sahrawi civilian prisoner, Abdallah Wali Ahmed Khafouni, within the Agdim Izik group, who is in the Kenitra Central Prison, north of the Moroccan capital, Rabat, embarked Thursday on a 48-hour hunger strike, according to a Sahrawi human rights source.

The source added that the strike came as a condemnation of the Moroccan state's continued arbitrary detention of the Sahrawi civilian prisoner and in protest against the degrading and inhumane conditions he suffered inside the prison and the associated deliberate indifference aimed at exercising all forms of restrictions on the latter and circumventing his basic and legitimate rights.
