Urgent call for Mohamed Tahlil, Sahrawi prisoner in Morocco

LPPS رابطة حماية السجناء الصحراويين بالسجون المغربية

Translated by  Fausto Giudice Фаусто Джудиче فاوستو جيوديشي


The League for the Protection of Sahrawi Political Prisoners in Moroccan Prisons (LPPS) has followed with deep concern the violations of the basic rights of Sahrawi political prisoner Mohamed Tahlil who is in solitary confinement in the “cachot” (dungeon) at Bouizakarne prison in southern Morocco.

It should be recalled that Mohamed Tahlil began a hunger strike on 3 December 2018 and is suffering from serious diseases. By alerting on the inhuman situation of the Sahrawi political prisoner Mohamed Tahlil, we call on humanitarian and human rights organizations to intervene urgently to save the prisoner's life and guarantee his fundamental rights, in accordance with his condition as a prisoner of conscience.

Mohamed Tahlil was born in 1981 in Guelta Zemour, Western Sahara. He is the president of the Boujdour section of the Sahrawi Association of Victims of Serious Human Rights Violations Committed by the Moroccan State, ASVDH. He was imprisoned for his political ideas in 2005 and 2007. In both cases, he was sentenced to three years' imprisonment, but was released after one and a half years' imprisonment. He was arrested with Bashir El Khadda and Hassan Dah on 5 December 2010, while they were having tea at Café Las Dunas in El Aayoun. On 17 February 2013, the Rabat Military Court sentenced him to 20 years in prison. On 19 July 2017, the sentence was upheld by the Salé Court of Appeal (Rabat). Mohamed suffers from digestive and renal complications following the hunger strikes he conducted to protest during his previous incarcerations. In the early hours of Saturday, September 16, 2017, the entire group of Gdeim Izik was divided and transferred to different prisons in the Kingdom of Morocco. Mohamed Tahlil was transferred to Bouzakarne prison, 460 km from El Aayoun.
