European Parliament and W.Sahara

EP’s intergroup for the Western Sahara calls on Morocco to recognise Saharawi people’s right to self-determination
Brussels, 02/12/2005 (SPS) The President of the EP’s intergroup for the Western Sahara, Mrs. Karin Scheele and her vice-President, Raul Romeva i Rueda, called on Morocco to "be coherent and recognise Saharawi people’s right to self-determination", which is a basic principle of the international legality, according to a press release publicised last November the 29th 2005 by the Intergroupe in Brussels.
The EP’s intergroupe, which expressed its "concern" in front of the policy of repression exercised by the Moroccan regime against the Saharawi citizens in the occupied territories of Western Sahara and South Morocco, stressed that this policy is "completely unacceptable".
It also demanded "the immediate release" of all the prisoners of consciousness, without more delays and without any iniquitous judgements, claiming for "a jut and transparent trials" for the Saharawi political detainees in Moroccan custody.
The text also noted that the "situation of human rights in Western Sahara requires, now more than ever, a special attention from the international community".
The press release expressed deep regret about the blockage of web sites last week in the occupied territories as well as the successive aggressions against children, women, old persons, handicapped as well as the ransacking of Saharawi houses since last May 2005 for "the simple reason of been Saharawis".
Qualifying these practices as "inadmissible an revolting", the press release further underlined that the policy of repression imposed by the Moroccan forces is the result of the absence of freedoms starting from the freedom "of expression to the physical torture". (SPS)
