Autonomy is the only solution to end the difficult situation of Tindouf detainees for more than 47 years (international experts)

International experts, before the Fourth Committee of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, denounced the tragic and inhumane situation of the Saharawi detained in the Tindouf camps.

Austrian historian and member of parliament Harald Trosch confirmed that these residents “suffer from insecurity and stability in unbearable conditions, and have been deprived of their human rights for 47 years.”

He stressed that the only solution to end this ordeal must go through the autonomy scheme presented by Morocco, an initiative described by Security Council resolutions as serious and credible.

Ernst Petrich, professor emeritus at Nova University, based in Ljubljana, Slovenia, pointed out that the regional dispute over the Sahara is moving towards a solution based on the autonomy scheme presented by Morocco in 2007.

He stressed that autonomy constitutes an embodiment of the principle of self-determination, explaining that the local population is capable, under this serious and credible plan, of managing their own affairs.

He considered that the solution of this regional dispute requires a political solution based on the autonomy plan, respecting the territorial integrity and national sovereignty of Morocco.

The American Karen Hardin, who represents “Priority PR”, condemned the tragic situation in the Tindouf camps, where kidnappings, detentions, forced labor, torture and rape prevail, and pointed out that the armed separatist militias of the “Polisario” control the rights people and monitor their movements.

He warned that “we cannot sit idly by while an international catastrophe becomes a more serious problem than it is today”, and stressed that a peaceful solution to the problem of the Moroccan Sahara would contribute to strengthening stability and eliminating terrorism in the region. of the Sahel.

He expressed his support for the position of the United States, which reiterated the need for all parties to adopt the autonomy plan under Moroccan sovereignty, which is characterized by its seriousness, credibility and realism.

Karel Eades, from the organization “Capitol Hill Prayer Partners”, condemned the living conditions of the residents detained in the Tindouf camps, where the armed separatist movement “Polisario” continues to cooperate with the “gangs” that infiltrate these camps and its surroundings.

In order to dismantle these camps, which constitute a space where the population suffers from poverty, and to work to promote peace and stability in the region, it is necessary, Corolle stresses, to find a solution to the regional conflict in the Sahara based on the autonomy regime, within the framework of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Morocco.
