Geneva – Morocco denounced in Geneva on Tuesday, Algeria’s “biased and implausible discourse” on human rights in the the Wesetrn Sahara, stressing that the neighboring country “cannot be both the judge and the party” in this dispute.
“Algeria continues to wrongly mention human rights in the Moroccan Sahara, as it has no credibility to do so since it systematically violates them back home,” said Hassane Boukili, Acting Chargé d’Affairs in Geneva in response to a statement by the Algerian Ambassador before the Human Rights Council (HRC).
In his speech at the general debate of the Council on the report of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Algerian ambassador called the HRC to “pay particular attention to the protection of human rights in the Sahara.”
“Due to its involvement as a party to this dispute, Algeria is anything but an observer. It has been involved since 1976, politically, diplomatically and financially for a separatist project in South of Morocco,” said the Moroccan diplomat.
