Briefing by MEPs, back from the military trial of the Sahrawi Gdeim Izik political prisoners in Marocco
For 27 months, a group of 23 Sahrawi political prisoners was incarcerated in the Salé Rabat prison (Morocco) just because they took part in Gdeim Izik Camp. This protest camp, the first in the Arab countries, gathered over 20,000 Sahrawis in Laayoune (Occupied Territories of Western Sahara). It was violently dismantled by the Moroccan army, which prompted widespread condemnation from the international community, including the European Parliament. On 17 February 2013, a Moroccan military court condemned 25 Sahrawi political prisoners to life imprisonment or prison terms from 2 years to 20, 25 and 30 years. Two MEPs were present as observers during the military trial and they will brief on it.
