HRW welcomes the role of the Polisario Front in the respect of human rights

Human Rights Watch (HRW) welcomed the role played by Polisario Front for the respect of human rights in Western Sahara, stressing "The improved situation of human rights in the Saharawi refugee camps."

"In the Saharawi refugee camps, the Polisario Front allows refugees to criticize its management of daily affairs,” HRW said in its report.

“Residents are able to leave the camps if they wish to, including to resettle in Moroccan-controlled Western Sahara. The fact that most take the main road to Mauritania rather than a clandestine route shows their confidence in being allowed to travel,” added the same source.

"The refugees in Tindouf have, for more than 30 years, lived in exile from their homeland, governed by a liberation movement in an environment that is physically harsh and isolated," said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East and North Africa director at Human Rights Watch.
