Independence of Saharawi state only way to ending violations of human rights in occupied Western Sahara (President of Republic)

Shaheed El-Hafed, Dec 11, 2016 (SPS) - President of the Republic, Secretary General of the Polisario Front, Brahim Ghali, affirmed that the independence of the Sahrawi state is the only way to put an end to the violations of human rights in occupied Western Sahara by Morocco for more than 41 years.

"The independence of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic is the only way to end the violations of human rights perpetrated by the Moroccan colonizer in the occupied territories of Western Sahara," said the President of the Republic during the celebration of the International Day of Human Rights at headquarters of CONASADH.

The President of the Republic called on freedom-loving people in the world to support the just struggle of the Sahrawi people for self-determination and independence, affirming that the persistence of the Moroccan occupation of Western Sahara means "the pursuit of the violation of human rights of the Sahrawi people".

He denounced the expansionist policy of the Moroccan state and its crimes against humanity and violations of human rights against the Saharawi people in the occupied territories to silence their voices calling for freedom and independence. (SPS)
