Claude Mangin, wife of Saharawi political prisoner Naama Asfari prohibited to enter Morocco to visit her husband
PUSL.- Claude Mangin, french citizen and wife of Saharawi political prisoner Naama Asfari of the Gdeim Izik group was prohibited today to enter Morocco to visit her husband who is serving a 30 year sentence in Kenitra prison near Rabat.
Mangin was forced by the Moroccan authorities to return to Paris from Casablanca Airport after arrival today.
The French citizen made a 30 days hunger strike in March-April 2018 in order to force the French authorities to intervene so that she could visit her husband after being prevented to enter Morocco since 2016.
After having obtained the commitment of the French government to mediate with the Moroccan authorities on the resumption of visits she was allowed to visit her husband in Kenitra prison last 14 and 15h of January.
This decision on the part of Morocco was welcomed “as a sign of appeasement” by the French organizations that support Mrs. Mangin and her husband, and was also seen as a positive development by the international community.
Nevertheless, it seems that the Moroccan Kingdom changed its mind once more and returned to an illogical stand insisting in violating basic and universal human rights.
