The decision of the CJEU is received with joy by the Saharawis in the occupied territories

Hmad Hamad, Vice-President of CODAPSO, expressed the feeling of justice and joy felt by the Saharawi population in the occupied territories, knowing that the ECJ once again publishes a decision stating clearly that Morocco can not sell the natural resources of Western Sahara in this case, fish.

Hmad Hamad:

February 27, 2018 is a very special and very great day at the same time, it is the day of the celebration of the proclamation of our nation and there is no better gift for us than the decision of the European Court of Justice that stopped the systematic robbery of Saharawi natural resources and destruction of the marine fauna in the territory of Western Sahara, making it clear that Morocco has no link with our land.

We feel the closeness of the world and a deep sense of strength to finally be able to stop the machine of the Moroccan looting and its henchmen, in fact, we will not stop now, but instead we have to continue fighting with arguments and with justice to paralyze all activities carried out illegally by the Moroccan State in the occupied territory of Western Sahara. In this way, we will open the closed doors for the realization of our nation’s self-determination and independence.

On 30 August 2017, Golden Ocean’s vessel Golden Keen left the El Aaiún harbour in the occupied Western Sahara with a cargo of approximately 79.000 tonnes of phosphate rock, destined for the port of Baton Rouge, where it arrived on 14 September. The rock was exported by the Moroccan state-owned company OCP which operates a mine in the part of Western Sahara that Morocco holds under illegal occupation.

The owner of the vessel, Golden Ocean Management AS, is based in Bermuda, and registered on NASDAQ and in Oslo.

“We now have a policy that we exclude Western Sahara for new charter contracts», CEO of Global Ocean, Birgitte Ringstad Vartdal told one of the largest online newspapers in Norway, Dagbladet, today.

South African High Court returns stolen phosphates to the Polisario Front

The High Court of South Africa published the ruling today on the cargo of phosphates transported on the ship “NM Cherry Blossom” which it transported from the occupied territories of Western Sahara.

The cargo sold by OCS and Phosphates of Bucraa SA, Moroccan state-owned companies that illegally exploit phosphates from the occupied territories of Western Sahara to two companies (Australian and New Zealand).

The vessel carrying 55,000 tonnes of phosphate was detained on 1 May 2017 when it landed at Port Elisabeth in South Africa.

By a decision issued on 23 February, the High Court of South Africa concluded that: (1) SADR “is the owner of all phosphate cargo currently loaded on the vessel NM Cherry Blossom” and (2) “ownership of the phosphate was never legally invested “in Moroccan state-owned companies OCP SA and, Phosphates de Boucraa, SA” and they were not entitled to sell phosphate to “Ballance Agri-Nutrients Ltd.”

The true will of the Saharawi people (by Hmad Hamad)

Hmad Hamad

To the International Community

Once again, the Saharawi people are betrayed, this time with the collaboration of the European Union!

The Moroccan state, with the complicity of the French government, is attempting to confuse international public opinion, in a shameless stratagem based on a great lie, orchestrated by Morocco and France.

These two countries, fierce enemies of the freedom of the Saharawi people, are trying to convince the opinion of the international community, and in particular the European Court of Justice (which recently decided that trade agreements between the European Union and the Moroccan may not include the Occupied Territory of Western Sahara) that the Saharawi population accepts to be ransacked and stolen and to sell this lie they present the Moroccan settlers as Saharawis.

EU has sealed Western Sahara trade deal in violation of Court Judgment

wsrw.org.-The European Commission and Morocco yesterday initialed an agreement covering trade in goods originating in Western Sahara without the consent of the people from the territory, contrary to the orders of the EU Court of Justice.

The European Commission yesterday, 31 January 2018, signed a new trade agreement with the Government of Morocco. The document was signed in Brussels, with two Moroccan ministers present. The deal ignores the judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) of 21 December 2016, which stated that Western Sahara is a “separate and distinct” territory from Morocco, and hence that the representatives of the people of the territory ought to consent to any EU trade or association agreement affecting their territory.

The prerequisite of consent of the representatives of the people of the territory has been totally ignored during the talks and is reportedly nowhere in to be found in the concluded agreement.
