Polisario denounces Moroccan prison sentences, describing them as "unjust"

The Polisario Front movement, on Thursday,  denounced a Moroccan court’s decision to sentence a group of Sahrawis to prison, describing the verdict as  “unjust”, Mail online reported.

On Wednesday a court in Sale near Rabat sentenced 23 Sahrawis to prison terms ranging from two years to life over the killing of 11 members of the Moroccan security forces in Western Sahara.

“The Moroccan authorities of occupation were not able to prove the accusations against the detainees despite all the means of torture (they used against them) and the threats,” the Polisario said in a statement.

It said Wednesday’s verdict was “unjust” and aimed at “stifling the voice of the Sahrawi people who are demanding their legitimate rights”.

In 2013 a military court sentenced the defendants to jail terms ranging from 20 years to life imprisonment.
