Human Rights in the Occupied Western Sahara ranked among the worst by Freedom House

Freedom House 2009 survey Freedom in the World, released on January 12, rankced the occupied zones of Western Sahara among the worst in terms of the violations of human rights.

The Moroccan occupied Western Sahara, which has always ranked as one of the least-free places in the world, according to Freedom House’s annual survey, continues to fall in the bottom tier next to countries like Zimbabwe and Tibet.

Last year, many international human rights organisations condemned the Moroccan human rights violations in the occupied territories.

Human rights Watch annual report 2008 clearly indicated that Morocco is violating Saharawi political, social and cultural rights, giving examples on the exercise of torture, unfair trials, detention, restriction on freedom of expression, demonstration.. etc
