Shaheed Al-Hafed, 18 April 2020 (SPS) - The Permanent Office of the National Secretariat of the Polisario Front has warned about the situation in which Sahrawi citizens are living in the occupied territories of Western Sahara, owing to the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Permanent Office, in its meeting chaired by the President of the Republic, Secretary-General of the Polisario Front, Mr. Brahim Ghali, warned against the dangerous situation in which the Sahrawi citizens are living in the occupied territory of Western Sahara and southern Morocco, especially the Sahrawi civilian prisoners in Moroccan prisons, with the spread of Coronavirus pandemic and lack of sanitary conditions, calling on the United Nations to intercede to protect them and follow up on their situation and release them immediately.

The Permanent Office held the Moroccan occupation state fully responsible for all risks to their lives that might result from this situation.

The Permanent Office, in view of the worsening of the Coronavirus pandemic in the world and the imminent danger it posed, appealed to the masses of the Sahrawi people, in all their locations, to enhance response to the efforts made at the national and global levels. (SPS)
