Sahrawi political prisoner Mohamed Bourial suspends hunger strike after 30 days

PUSL.- Mohamed Bourial who went on hunger strike on 20th March suspended his strike today after 30 days.

The Sahrawi political prisoner of the group of Gdeim Izik is in an alarming state of health and did not have any type of medical assistance during the hunger strike.

Following the visit of the Director of Tiflet2 Prison and a representative of the DGAPR (Directorate General of Penitentiary Administration and Social Reintegration) and the promise that he will be transferred to a prison closer to his family in the summer, Mohamed Bourial has suspended his hunger strike.

Mohamed Bourial, who has a 30-year sentence, is in prolonged isolation, is a victim of ill-treatment. He is detained in Tiflet2 Prison in Morocco, more than 1,300 km from his family who resides in El Aaiun, Western Sahara. Read more

Saharawi political prisoner Amaadour presented to court, trial postponed and still on hunger strike

PUSL.- Saharawi political prisoner Lahoucine Amaadour (Saharawi name Husein Bachir Brahim) was brought to court on Tuesday, April 16 after 90 days of arbitrary detention (maximum term of detention without trial). The court did not inform the defence lawyer, which for that reason, did not appear and the trial was postponed to June 11.

The “forgetting” of the court in summoning the defence lawyer thus causes Amaadour to remain detained for 147 days without in pre-trial detention which is illegal.

A manoeuvre often used when it comes to Saharawi political prisoners whose trials are postponed consecutively, thus extending the period of pre-trial detention far beyond the time allowed by law. Read more
