PUSL.- The family of Mohamed Bourial informed this morning that the political prisoner of Gdeim Izik group, Mohamed Bourial who was transferred to Tiflet2 last Friday 12th will enter an open hunger strike tomorrow.

In Tiflet2 there are now four of the Sahrawi political prisoners of the group of Gdeim Izik and all in hunger strike. El Bachir Khadda on hunger strike since 18 September, Abdallahi Abbahah since 1st October, Mohamed Lamin Haddi since 5th October and Mohamed Bourial will start on the 15th of October.

All prisoners have the same demands to be transferred to a prison near their families in El Aaiun, respect for their fundamental rights, and medical attention.

In Tiflet2 the prisoners are subjected to prolonged confinement, harassment, ill-treatment, and their basic rights are not respected. The families struggle to be able to visit them since Tiflet is over 1300km from El Aaiun.
