The 19 Saharawi Political Prisoners known as Gdeim Izik group, continue to suffer ill-treatment, medical neglect and torture after two unfair trials that have not been able to prove the guilt of any of the accused. Furthermore, two and a half years after the last trial the Moroccan Supreme Court still did not issue its decision. Their lawyer Maitre Olfa Ouled was prevented from seeing her clients or contact them, having been expelled from Morocco in February 2018 for the second time.
