New attacks against Sultana Sid Brahim. Her life is in danger.

                                                                          Press release

At around 4 a.m. on Monday, November 8, 2021, elements of the Moroccan occupation forces again raided the home of Sid Brahim Jaya's family in the occupied city of Bojador (Sahrawi Republic). The assailants used the usual modus operandi of physical and mental assault, destroying the family's property and personal effects. They poured a foul liquid of unknown origin on the floor and walls of the house. They also injected human rights defender Sultana Sid Brahim Jaya with a substance unknown both in terms of product and consequences.

The Moroccan expansionist regime has carefully chosen the moment, coinciding with the National Day of the Saharawi Civilian Prisoner as well as the timing of the violent dismantling of the Gdeim Izik camp on November 8, 2020.

Today, at midday, Sultana Sid Brahim Jaya started having fever, headache, dizziness, nausea and vomiting. Her condition continues to deteriorate at the time of writing this Press Release and we are fears for her life

The Association of Families of Prisoners and Disappeared Sahrawis (AFAPREDESA) fears that this is a new assassination attempt or medical experiment with the aim of silencing the human rights defender.

Recall that since November 19, 2020, the family of Sid Brahim Jaya has been living under a siege unprecedented in the contemporary history of humanity. The sordid mission is carried out by unscrupulous men, sent on direct orders from a worthy monarch of the kingdoms of darkness. It is strangely reminiscent of the threats launched by Hassan II against any Moroccan who meets a Palestinian. It was April 24, 1987, after the historic meeting between Saharawi President Mohamed Abdelaziz and his Palestinian counterpart Yaser Arafat in Algiers. In his televised address that day, Hassan II did not skimp on his words: "Anyone who meets a Palestinian, his house will be tainted with what is not said, as my ancestors did." Mohammed VI carries out these threats against two Sahrawi sisters and human rights defenders, Sultana and Luaara, and their mother, Minatu Emboiric, 84, as well as other members of Sid Brahim Khaia's family.

Faced with the gravity of the facts, AFAPREDESA launches an urgent appeal to national opinion, to the movement of solidarity with Saharawi people, to the international community, in particular to the United Nations (including its organs such as the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Human Rights Council, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Decolonization Committee, the UN Secretary General ...), the African Union and its organs such as the AU Commission, the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights and the Pan-African Parliament, the European Union and its organs such as the EU Commission and the European Parliament, to the governments of States concerned, in particular Spain, de jure administering power and the United States of America, holder of the pen in the Security Council on the question of Western Sahara, France, as a major actor in the region , along with the rest of the members of the Security Council, Conf Swiss government, depositary of the Geneva Convention and the International Committee of the Red Cross in order to act quickly to:

       The dispatch of a neutral and independent medical commission to examine and provide the physical and psychological care necessary for the state of health of Sultana Sid Brahim and members of her family.

       Urgent intervention to protect Sultana Sid Brahim Jaya and her family members from future attacks.

       The immediate lifting of the state of siege and house arrest, imposed de facto, from November 19, 2021, against Sultana Sid Brahim Jaya and members of her family.

       The opening of a thorough, independent, transparent and impartial investigation into the serious human rights violations and war crimes perpetrated by the Moroccan colonial forces against Sultana Sid Brahim Jaya and members of her family, since November 19, 2021.
