Washington DC - If Sweden’s plan to recognize the self-proclaimed “Sahrawi Republic (SADR)” is a part of its new “feminist” foreign Policy agenda, then Foreign Minister Margot Wallström did not do her homework before undertaking this endeavor. She should have read Human Rights Watch reports describing the deteriorating human and civil rights in the Tindouf Camps.  Sweden if indeed is pushing a new radically different diplomacy, it should insure that SADR free all political prisoners, end all forms of slavery and hold open and free elections.
