Iranian lawyer Shirin Ebadi concerned about situation of injustice imposed on Saharawi people

Madrid, May 24, 2014 (SPS) The Iranian lawyer and Nobel Laureate for Peace 2003, Shirin Ebadi, on Friday expressed her concern about the injustice experienced by the Saharawi people, calling on the international community to act to end to this injustice, which lasted so long, according to a statement of CEAS-Sahara.
During the end of the first Congress on universal jurisdiction held in Madrid May 20 to 23, Iranian lawyer expressed "deep concern about the fate of the Saharawi people, which is one of the most painful situations in modern history. They are imprisoned in their own land, and their voice is not heard."
The case of Western Sahara is similar to that of Palestine, she added, stressing that what is happening in Palestine is known, while the Western Sahara issue is misunderstood by some countries of the world.
In this regard, the Iranian lawyer called on the media to do more to publicize the suffering of the Saharawi people, who is imprisoned in its own country and deprived of all basic rights, she regretted. (SPS)
