Moroccan court postpones trial of Gdeim Izik prisoners

Salé (Morocco), May 19, 2017 (SPS) - The Moroccan court has postponed the trial of the Sahrawi political prisoners of Gdeim Izik until June 5, according to a Sahrawi human rights source from the occupied territories.

According to the source, the court decided to postpone the judgment after two weeks of hearings that witnessed numerous violations of the right of the prisoners in a fair trial.

In view of the persistence of the court in the chapters of its farce, the prisoners and their defense announced their boycott of the trial sessions in protest against the manner in which the Moroccan authorities conducted the hearings. (SPS)
