PUSL.-The activist and political prisoner, Saharawi Mohamed Lamine Haddi, is currently 63 days out of contact with his family.

Mohamed Lamin Haddi was sentenced to 25 years in prison after the unfair trial of ‘Gdeim Izik’, based on confessions obtained under torture. Since his arrest in 2010, he has been in prisons over 1000 km from his native Western Sahara and has been in solitary confinament isolated for over 3 years.

Haddi suffers from severe ulcers and has been the victim of intentional medical negligence, torture, physical and psychological abuse and harassment since his arrest in 2010. This situation, along with Morocco’s refusal to allow him to communicate, raises concerns and questions about his destiny. mainly in relation to isolation and health conditions.

On March 1, Haddi’s mother, sister, and brother went to Tiflet2’s prison, but were not allowed to enter or speak to him.

63 days ago he made a short call with his family and since then there has been no news.

We call on the United Nations, the International Committee of the Red Cross and all international organizations dealing with human rights, to take urgent measures to protect Haddi from any retaliatory measures to which he may be exposed inside Tiflet 2 prison and all measures necessary to put pressure on the Moroccan State to provide adequate health care, secure the transfer of Mohamed Lamine Haddi to a prison in Western Sahara near his home, El Aaiun, and allow contact with his family.
