Sahrawi NGO expresses its solidarity with political prisoners on hunger strike in Bulemharez prison

The Saharawi Association of victims of grave violations of human rights committed by the Moroccan State (ASVDH) expressed Thursday its support and solidarity with the Sahrawi political prisoners on hunger strike for more than six weeks in the Moroccan prison of Bulemharez (Marrakech).

ASVDH has urged Moroccan authorities to reply as soon as possible to the legitimate claims of those prisoners, to "save their lives from certain death," the association said.

In this regard, the association holds the Moroccan authorities "responsible for the consequences that may result from this hunger strike which threatens lives of the political prisoners, arrested for their political opinions in favour of self-determination of the Saharawi people ".

Finally, ASVDH launched a call to international organizations of human rights to put pressure on Morocco for the release of Saharawi political prisoners which still languish in Moroccan prisons.
