PUSL.- Mr. Bani, Sahrawi political prisoners of the Gdeim Izik Group, who went on hunger strike for 14 days in March, which aggravated his already precarious health, since he was placed in solitary confinement as punishment, has not yet received appropriate medical attention.

The hunger strike ended after a meeting with the Regional Delegate of the General Delegation for Administration of Penitentiaries and Social Reintegration, when he was promised a transfer to Bouzakarn Prison, with authorization for family visits 4 days a week and two weekly phone calls.

These promises have not been fulfilled and Mr Bani remains in the same situation.

His French lawyer, Maitre Ouled, told us that she had sent a fax to the director of the Ait Melloul prison on the basis of article 75 of the Dahir n ° 1-99-200 of 13 joumada I 1420 (Moroccan law), which authorizes and regulates family visits . She requested that the presence of Mr. Bani’s children, including some minors, would be taken into account.

In response, the Action of the Christians for the Abolition of Torture (ACAT) and the International Service for Human Rights (ISHR) once again urge the United Nations to appeal to Morocco.

Naâma Asfari, a Saharawi human rights defender, has been detained since November 2010 and sentenced to 30 years imprisonment on the basis of confessions signed under torture for his participation in the Gdeim Izik protest camp.

In April 2018, in protest, Claude decided to go on hunger strike for a month. 2 months later and despite repeated attempts by the French government to get Morocco to let her enter the kingdom to visit Naâma Asfari, Claude is still denied the right to visit her husband.
