Rabat – Daily newspapers published on Wednesday dedicated their comments to the adoption by the European Parliament of Tannock report on the situation of human rights in the Sahel region.
Bayan Al Youm wrote that the Moroccan parliamentary delegation conducted a fierce battle at the European Parliament, which leaded to the adoption of the report on the situation of human rights in the Sahel, drafted by British Conservative MEP Charles Tannock.
According to the editorialist, the Moroccan delegation welcomed the outcome of the final vote in Strasbourg, considering it as a failure of the maneuvers of some MEPs that support the theses of the separatists.
“The final version of the report referred to the violations of human rights in the Tindouf camps and emphasized the need to find a negotiated political solution, just, lasting and mutually acceptable by the parties to the conflict over the Sahara, ” he says.
Attajdid affirms that “the Moroccan diplomacy foiled the political maneuvers aimed at disrupting the negotiations on the renewal of the fisheries agreement between Morocco and the EU and to prevent its ratification by the European Parliament.”
The editorialist considers that the report highlighted the efforts made by Morocco in strengthening human rights and its openness to the mechanisms of the UN system, welcomed the process of political and economic reforms and referred to the deplorable situation of human rights in Tindouf camps, especially regarding the rights of expression and movement.
The report endorses directly to Algeria the responsibility of the situation of human rights in Tindouf camps, he says.
Al Massae notes that this paper sheds light on the serious problems of the social level in the Tindouf camps and exposes the policy pursued by the Polisario.
The editorialist also reveals the poverty which blights the Tindouf camps and the lack of future prospects for many refugees exposing the inhabitants of these camps to extremism and likely to criminal or terrorist networks.
Al Khabar stresses that the report notes that the Tindouf camps is likely to become a home of extremism regarding the lack of future prospects for camps inhabitants, where poverty is rampant.
The report, the editorialist says, notes that the Polisario leadership imposed a blockade on the camps and restrictions on freedom of movement and freedom of expression, which aggravates the plight of the camp population who are de facto prisoners in the desert.
