Prolonged solitary confinement of the Saharawi Political Prisoners

PUSL.- The four Gdeim Izik prisoners currently held in Tiflet2 prison are being held in prolonged solitary confinement, some of them have been denied the access to books although they are currently in university exams and have no meaningful human contact.

The four Saharawi political prisoners are in different modules (housing units) in the prison and never see each other nor do they contact each other.

El Bachir Khadda is in this situation for over 9 months (285 days) since his transfer on the 16th of September 2017, having neither books, nor radio or tv. He spends 22 hours in confinement in his cell, but even the two hours he is allowed to exit he chooses to stay in the cell due to the constant harassment of the common criminals in detention, a behavior that is incentivized by the guards. When the other prisoners try to engage however in a normal conversation the guards punish them. Read more
