The Sahrawi political prisoners of the Gdeim Izik group, Mohamed Lamin Haddi and El Bashir Khadda who are detained in Tiflet prison started today a 48-hour hunger strike in protest against the delay of the local prison administration complying with the promiss to transfer them to another prison and ensuring their right to study.
Over a month passed after Haddi and Khadda suspended their open hunger strike between November and December of last year following the commitment of the General Administration of Prisons to meet all their just demands, which are based mainly on the right to study and improve their conditions of detention. The local prison administration has adopted a policy of procrastination, indifference and non-fulfillment of its obligations and obligations towards the demands of the Saharawi political prisoners, according to information obtained by the Committee of the Families of the Detainees.
Therefore , the two Sahrawi political prisoners decided to make a 48h in protest against the lack of fulfillment of the commitments made by the administration of Tiflet.
Haddi and Khadda were transferred on Saturday, September 16, 2017, as well as 16 other members of the Gdeim Izik group who were dispersed in several prisons in the Moroccan Kingdom.
Since this arbitrary transfer all prisoners have been victims of descrimination, torture or ill treatment and have undergone several hungerstrikes.
