Morocco denies legal action against Saharawi political prisoners

The General Delegation of the Prison Administration and Reintegration (GDPAR) of the Kingdom of Morocco reacted to a letter sent by foreign lawyers to the French Prime Minister on the situation of the political prisoners of the group of Gdeim Izik reported yesterday in  h24info.ma.

In an article published on Thursday, in response to the letter / denunciation of a group of lawyers from 5 countries addressed to the French prime minister visiting Morocco, the General Delegation of the Prison Administration and Reintegration (GDPAR) denies the allegations and states that the detainees enjoy all their rights, in the same way as other prisoners, and do not suffer damage to their dignity or mistreatment,

According to GDPAR  “the lack of positive interaction between some of those detainees and their obstinacy in making hunger strike warnings despite the institution’s willingness to facilitate their detention conditions and preserve their health, the administration had to apply the regulation appropriate against them “. Not specifying what  the “appropriate regulation against them” is.

It is surprising to note that a hunger strike, according to the GDPAR  is an act of indiscipline which requires disciplinary correction and that there is an “appropriate regulation”, which probably are  the ones that can be read in the letter of the lawyers.

GDEIM IZIK – Lawyers from 5 countries send letter to French Prime Minister

European lawyers from Germany, Belgium, Spain, France, Italy and Switzerland sent today a letter to the French prime minister visiting Rabat calling for his intervention to protect the Sahrawi political prisoners known as the Gdeim Izik Group.

According to Ingrid Metton, French lawyer of the defense team of these political prisoners, the conditions of detention are alarming, with serious risks to the physical integrity of the 19 detainees not only because of the lack of medication and minimal medical attention, but also because the administration of Kenitra prison transferred a Moroccan prisoner of common crime with a history of extreme violence to the same ward as the saharawi detainees The political prisoners went on a 48-hour strike to alert public opinion to this threat and hold the prison director accountable for any injuries and attacks they may suffer.

This letter is a further appeal in a long list of international communications and denunciations from various quarters of civil society that warn of the seriousness of the situation and call on the international community to pressure Morocco to respect the basic principles of human rights.

Mrs. Metton reaffirmed that both she and her colleague and co-advocate for the group, Dr. Olfa Ouled will continue to defend these human rights activists until justice prevails.

Statement of the Political Prisoners of the Gdeim Izik group

On 10 November 2017, the Central Prison Administration of Kenitra placed a Moroccan prisoner who comitted violent crimes, in a cell in the same wing as the rooms of the Saharawi political prisoners Mr El Bashir Boutanguiza , Abdallahi Lakfawni and Houcein Zawi. , The presence of a detainee of criminal offense in the same wing where the Sahrawi political detainees are present constitutes a danger to our lives and a threat to our physical safety, especially since the Moroccan state, through its media, has always launched campaigns to incite against us, which makes us always threatened, especially after the prison administration has dispersed our group in various prisons. To join Saharawi Political Prisoners with Moroccan prisoners of criminal offense is a flagrant violation of the law, charters and customs that provide for the protection of prisoners of conscience, even more when the prisoners of conscience are from an occupied territory .

We condemn this heinous act and bad intentions and hold the Moroccan State fully responsible for what may affect the safety of our lives. Our lives are threatened and we call on all associations, and democratic institutions to intervene to save us.
