One year after, the Saharawi Gdeim Izik political prisoners are still subject to inhuman treatments

By Fito Alvarez Tombo – PUSL

19 of the original 24 Saharawi political prisoners of Gdeim Izik Group remain in prison, with sentences that range from 20 years to life imprisonment and continue to be victims of torture, ill treatment and intentional medical neglect by the Moroccan authorities.

The French defense lawyer of the Gdeim Izik Group, Maître Ouled, is extremely preoccupied with the continues disrespect of the Moroccan authorities with the most basic human rights, as well as the infringements and violations of the national and international law regarding her defendants.

“They have been subjected to sever ill treatment and in some cases torture, as well as extreme medical neglect after their last sentencing on 19th of July 2017 by the court of appeal of Salé, Rabat. Besides the fact that there is still a decision pending from the Cour de cassation and that this trial did not present any evidence of guilt, it is clear that my clients are in some cases in life endangerment due to their health status. We are addressing, with their families, the competent authorities regarding the infringements and violation and will continue to do so. We are just asking for the inherent rights of my clients to be considered as innocent since there is no proof of guilt other than declarations signed under torture, tortures that were never investigated. It is here a question of the right to live which excludes confinement and almost total isolation from the outside world.  An urgent solution has to be found since clearly this situation is not sustainable for much longer.”

He spends 22 hours in confinement in his cell, but even the two hours he is allowed to exit he chooses to stay in the cell due to the constant harassment of the common criminals in detention, a behavior that is incentivized by the guards.

Saharawi political prisoners on hunger strike threaten to enter “Dry Hunger strike”

According to information from the families of the 4 Sahrawi political prisoners of the Gdeim izik group in hunger strike in Kenitra prison since the 9 March, Sidi Abdallahi Abbahah, Abdallahi Lakfawni, El Bachir Boutanguiza and Mohamed Bourial will go on a dry hunger strike on Wednesday if none of their claims are accepted by the Moroccan authorities.

A dry hunger strike involves not eating any food or liquid.

“Dry” hunger strikes are rare. The body can not survive more than a few days without water, and death would occur in the first week in most cases.

According to the author of “First Do No Harm: Medical Ethics in International Humanitarian Law,” Sigrid Mehring: In medical terms, death by refusal to eat occurs in the event of a “dry hunger strike” (refusal of food and water) after about three to four days. The health risks increase when the striker was not in good health and already suffered from health problems.

Prolonged starvation can result in serious harm to a person’s body and mind. When there is a deficit in energy intake, the body consumes its own stocks to maintain blood glucose, its main fuel. The body will first use fat stocks. Then, the body will begin to use muscle and organ tissue to produce energy. Salt and vitamin deficiencies are also harmful for the body. During a hunger strike, in addition to weight loss, many other symptoms are common:

Sensation of hunger at the beginning then loss of appetite;
Apathy and irritability;
