Gdeim Izik prisoners’ sentence: Sidati urges EU to intervene to end escalation of repression

Brussels, July 23, 2017 (SPS) - Sahrawi Minister, representative of the Polisario Front for Europe Mohamed Sidati on Sunday urged the European Union (EU) to intervene to end the “escalation of Morocco's repression” against the Sahrawi people and force it to stop its “occupation” and “oppression” policy.

“We call on EU for urgent and firm intervention with Morocco to put an end to its escalation of repression and to stop its occupation and oppression policy”, wrote Sidati in a letter sent to the head of the European diplomacy Federica Mogherini.

Warning EU on its responsibility in the occupation and colonisation policy of Western Sahara “led relentlessly by Morocco,” Mohamed Sidati affirmed that this policy “dangerously exposes UN’s peace operation in Western Sahara.”

Sidati called EU to “condemn the unjustified sentences” pronounced Wednesday against the prisoners of Gdeim Izik group and “demand the release of all the Sahrawi political prisoners.” (SPS)
