PUSL.- The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has confirmed in it’s latest ruling published on 19th of July that Morocco has no sovereignty over Western Sahara and therefore the EU’s fisheries agreement with Morocco cannot be applied to the territory.
“it follows from the foregoing considerations that the Partnership Agreement and the 2013 Protocol must be interpreted in accordance with the rules of international law binding on the Union and applicable in the relations between the Union and the Kingdom of Morocco. In this sense, the territory of Western Sahara, and the waters adjacent to the territory, do not fall within the respective territorial scope of this Agreement and Protocol”.
This judgement referes to the case brought by the Frente Polisario against the EU Council over the application of the EU-Morocco Fisheries Agreement to Western Sahara in 2014 and confirms the two previous rulings of 21st December 2016 referring to the case presented by Polisario Front and on 27th February 2018 the case of Western Sahara Campaign against the UK Government that was then referred by the UK High Court to the CJEU.
