Polisario Front calls on Spain to assume its legal responsibilities for decolonization of Western Sahara

Shaheed El Hafed, October 10, 2016 (SPS) The National Secretariat of the Polisario Front called on Spanish government to assume its historic, legal, political and moral responsibility for urgent decolonization of Western Sahara, the last colony in Africa.

In a statement sanctioning its third ordinary session, the National Secretariat called on Spain to assume its responsibility towards the Saharawi people, a responsibility that cannot be renounced, confirmed by Spanish Supreme Court in July 2014 and the Attorney General of the Court of justice of the European Union (CJEU) Melchior Wathelet last September.

It took this opportunity to welcome the European solidarity movement with the Saharawi people, particularly in Spain.

The National Secretariat considered that France, with its blatant bias, particularly at the Security Council, in favor of Morocco, it violates the provisions of international law and must therefore be held responsible for the tensions and threats to the security and stability of the region. (SPS)
