Sahrawi National Committee for Human Rights expresses its strong condemnation over Moroccan state continuing arrest of the Sahrawi student group

Bir Lahlou (liberated Territories) Feb 14, 2018 (SPS) - The Sahrawi National Committee for Human Rights expressed its strong condemnation of the Moroccan state in the ongoing detention of 15 Sahrawi students from the ranks of the students and the postponement of their trial  for the third time in a row until March.

Facing the postponement, the Sahrawi National Committee for Human Rights denounces the unjustified postponement and the arbitrary and unjust detention of the Saharawi student group and condemns the repression and arbitrary measures against them by the Moroccan prison administration in Marrakech and demands the immediate and unconditional release of the Moroccan state.

It also voices its absolute solidarity with all Saharawi political prisoners and their families who suffer from the despicable practices of Morocco which are contrary to all international norms and conventions.

The Sahrawi National Committee for Human Rights appealed to all the forces of justice, fairness, media outlets, personalities to pressure Morocco to intervene to release all Saharawi political prisoners in Moroccan prisons.

The Sahrawi Commission highly and warmly appreciated the unity of the position of the Sahrawi students and their challenge to the Moroccan colonial authorities and warmly saluted the continued presence of the Saharawi families and solidarity activists and human rights defenders who visited the detainees of the student group in the Moroccan city of Marrakesh.SPS
