PUSL.- The Saharawi political prisoner Mohamed Lamin Haddi of the group of Gdeim Izik, currently held in the Tiflet 2 prison in Morocco, started an open hunger strike on the 5h of October against the daily harassment, ill-treatment and prolonged confinement he is subjected to since his transfer in 2017 from El Arjat Prison. During his last hunger strike, Mr. Haddi was promised to be transferred to a prison nearer to his family in Western Sahara, and also to be allowed to study and have the necessary medical attention, promises that were not kept by the Moroccan authorities.

All prisoners of the Gdeim Izik Group currently held in Tiflet2 are now in hunger strike. Mohamed Lamin Haddi joined Abdallahi Abbahah who started his hunger strike on the 1st of October and El Bachir Khadda who started on the 18th of September.

The prisoners have been without meaningful human contact for months, victims of psychological torture, harassment, and ill-treatment. They are in cells with the bare minimum necessary, without any means to spend their time, starring at the walls 22 hours or more under prolonged confinement. Read more
