Sahrawi Political Prisoners of the Gdeim Izik Group remain victims of medical malpractice and isolation
PUSL / Jornal Tornado.- The 19 Sahrawi political prisoners of the Gdeim Izik group continue to be victims of abuse, ill-treatment, torture and intentional medical malpractice at the hands of the Moroccan authorities.
The reprisals are getting worse. Mrs. Mangin, wife of Mr. Asfari has been expelled again after having only once visited her husband after 2 years of prohibition to enter Morocco and a 30 day hunger strike. This time Mrs. Mangin didn’t get the opportunity to be accompanied by the CNDH (Moroccan National Human Rights Council) to whom she obviously asked for help before going.
Morocco ignores the decisions of the United Nations so far, and the agreements and treaties signed. In the case of Naama Asfari, despite a letter of the Committee against Torture of the United Nations (CAT) asking to stop any reprisals against Naama, the CNDH demonstrated its lack of power despite the Moroccan law itself which in theory is supposed to apply the OPCAT (Optional Protocol of the Convention against Torture).
