Italian consortium and Siemens in violation of International Law support Moroccan occupation
PUSL.- Morocco signs 377 million wind power deal between The Moroccan kingdom’s National Office of electricity and drinking water (ONEE) and the Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy (MASEN Moroccan Nareva Holding and Italy’s Enel Green Power consortium in Rabat last week.
“Nareva Holding – Enel Green Power” consortium, associated with “Siemens Gamesa Renewables”, won the international call for tenders in 2016 for the development, design, financing, construction, operation, and maintenance of the 850 MW Integrated Wind Energy Project.
The new Boujdour wind farm is located about 7 kilometers northeast of the city of Boujdour (occupied Western Sahara) and the construction work set to begin in 2021.
Another Moroccan greenwashing project that disrespects International law and brings no benefit to the Saharawi population living in the occupied territories.
Each new “deal” in the occupied territories opens opportunities for more Moroccan settlers to come to the occupied territories. The Moroccan authorities deny employment to the Saharawi population but offer higher paid jobs to Moroccan settlers and also no tax payment as well as other benefits to populate the occupied territories.
Italy and Germany being member of the European Union have to obey the decisions of the European Court of Justice which stated already clearly in 3 decisions that Morocco has no sovereignty over the territory and that the Saharawi population has to give their consent in commerce, trade and exploitation of their resources.
These rulings are in fact nothing new and just reaffirm the International Law and the opinion of the International Court as well as the resolutions of the United Nations and the African Union.
