AREN denounces illegal activities of Indian Larsen & Toubro in occupied Western Sahara

El-Aaiun (Occupied Territories), 17 May 2020 (SPS) - The Association for the Monitoring of Resources and the Protection of the Environment in Western Sahara (AREN) has denounced the illegal activities carried out by Indian Larsen & Toubro, along with other foreign companies, in the occupied parts of Western Sahara by Morocco. 

The Sahrawi Association said that the aforementioned company is seeking to build a power plant in the occupied city of Dakhla, considering such activities only perpetuate the Moroccan occupation of Western Sahara and support the Moroccan regime and encourage it to continue to commit more serious violations of human rights, looting and depleting the Sahrawi wealth and prolonging the conflict.

The Sahrawi Association reminded all companies that any economic activity in Western Sahara was illegal and violated international law in view of the legal status of Western Sahara. (SPS)
