Staff at Oukasha Prison in Morocco attack Sahrawi political prisoner Abdeljalil Lemkaimad

Morocco, Oct 24, 2017 (SPS) - Sources close to the family of the Sahrawi political prisoner of the Gdeim Izik Group, Abdeljalil Lemkaimad, claim that staff of the Oukasha Prison in Morocco attacked, threatened and punished the Saharawi political prisoner.

Sahrawi political prisoner Abdeljalil Lemkaimad has been in the abovementioned prison since the arbitrary decision to disperse the prisoners of Gdeim Izik by different Moroccan prisons on 16 September 2017.

The mother of the political prisoner recently visited the jail where her son is and saw the poor conditions imposed by the prison administration, such as a ban on communication, medical treatment and balanced diet. SPS
