The organization has said that the arrest comes after the arrest of eleven people during the day on Friday and has highlighted that “the campaign of repression unleashed by the Polisario continues as a result of the demonstrations against corruption carried out this week by groups of young people in the refugee camps.”
“Since the beginning of last April, the refugee camps have been the scene of multiple demonstrations and protests against the leadership of the Polisario, denouncing the restrictions and measures against free movement as well as the corruption that gangrenes the organization in all its structures,” he said. stressed the MSP.
Finally, it has reported that the Polisarío Front has adopted “strong control measures”, including the “closing of access to Rabuni”, in the surroundings of Tindouf. “The MSP has denounced in letters to the United Nations the campaign of repression and the disproportionate use of police force by the Polisario against the Saharawi refugees,” he concluded.
