Paris, March 07, 2016 (SPS) -The French newspaper  l'Humanité Monday regretted the standoff of the United Nations (UN) because of its failure to achieve the self-determination referendum of the people of Western Sahara in accordance with international legality.

 

"Since 1991, the United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO) is unable to carry out the consultation because of the intransigence of the Moroccan kingdom which calls for broad autonomy in defiance of international resolutions, "wrote the daily.

 

In their struggle for the right to self-determination, l’ Humanité has observed that "a dozen of political prisoners arbitrarily detained in the prison of Salé in Morocco, as the UN has recognized, began on  March 01 indefinite hunger strike. " (SPS)
