Polisario front condemns expulsion campaign of international observers in occupied Western Sahara

Birlehlou, August 19, 2014 (SPS) - The Polisario Front has expressed its deepest concern over the campaign launched by the Moroccan authorities against international observers continuously expelled from Western Sahara.
The President of the Republic and Secretary General of the Polisario Front, Mohamed Abdelaziz, in a letter sent Monday to the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon, drew the attention of the international organization to the intense campaign of harassment, accusations, degrading treatment, and forced expulsions against human rights activists, lawyers, parliamentarians, journalists, and asked the UN for an urgent action to end these unfair practices exercised by Morocco.
The President of the Republic noted that the expulsion of international observers from a territory under UN responsibilities does not only represent a flagrant violation of international law but also an insult to the international community and undermines the credibility of the international organization.
