Major Event

 Polisario's repression against the uprising in Tindouf camps reflects the separatists' fear of the Sahrawis' support to the autonomy project within the framework of Moroccan sovereignty, said, here Wednesday, Foreign minister, Mohamed Benaissa.

Morocco is mulling a proposal to grant large autonomy - under its sovereignty and territorial integrity - to the Sahara to solve the dispute related to these provinces, which the Algeria-backed Polisario separatists lay claim to since the mid-Seventies.
 
Speaking at the House of Representatives question time, Benaissa said these camps witnessed, during the last week of June 2006, a great uprising during which the sequestered voiced their rejection of the cruel acts perpetrated against them by "Polisario" gangs.

The minister said that in order to silence the voices that claim their rights within the framework of international legality, "Polisario" militias, supervised by the Algerian military police forces, set up "mobile sequestration camps" that are difficult to locate. 
 
As for the efforts and measures undertaken to deal with this situation, Benaissa said Morocco sent a message to the UN Secretary General calling him to shed light on these practices and to determine the responsibilities. The Kingdom, he said, included in this message many testimonies that highlight the worrying degradation of the human rights situation in Tindouf camps.
 
Morocco also noted the responsibility of Algeria in ensuring the body safety of the sequestered, as it hosts the camps and the organizational structures of the “polisario”, he added. 
 
Benaissa also recalled that through its diplomacy, Morocco conducted a campaign denouncing these acts and inviting the international community to step in urgently to put an end to these violations and avoid a human tragedy.
