Question for written answer  E-000958/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Sandra Pereira (The Left)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Saharawi political prisoner Mohamed Lamin Haddi in Morocco

Mohamed Lamin Haddi, a Saharawi political prisoner in Morocco, is on hunger strike. Detained since 2010, he was sentenced to 25 years imprisonment in a trial deemed to have contravened procedural rules for failing to establish evidence of a crime.

Mohamed Lamin Haddi has reportedly been in solitary confinement in a cell measuring 5 m2 since 2017. He has no access to basic sanitary facilities or medical care and is not properly fed. The poor sanitary conditions in prison are heightened by COVID-19. According to his lawyer, the transfer request filed with the Public Prosecutor of the Kingdom of Morocco remains unanswered.

In the light of the above:

Has the Commission taken any steps to find out about the state of Mohamed Lamin Haddi’s health?

How does it reconcile the EU’s association agreement with the Kingdom of Morocco – which provides for a suspension in the event of human rights violations – with the fact that the rights of the Saharawi people are continually violated and cases like the above persist?
