Mr. B .A El Mami Counselor General of the republic of Saharawi in South Africa

By Hassan Isilow
The republic of Saharawi has asked the African civil society to support them in the fight against human rights violations being committed by the Moroccan government against its people in the Western Sahara.
This appeal was made by Mr. B .A El Mami Counselor General of the republic of Saharawi in South Africa, while speaking to Africa witness in an exclusive interview.
‘‘We appeal to civil society organisations in Africa to help us in the campaign against human rights violations instigated by the Moroccan Government on innocent civilians in the Western Sahara’’ the diplomat appealed.
He said hundreds of Saharawi citizens had gone missing, and he believes they could have been killed while in Moroccan prisons.
Human rights organisations have previously reported that most people detained in Moroccan Prisons were tortured and maltreated in overcrowded spaces.
The Moroccan government has been illegally occupying the Western Sahara for many years, which has made some analysts to compare Israel’s Occupation of Palestine to the current situation in Saharawi.
