Political prisoner on hunger strike


Embarek Daudi

Embarek Daudi, Saharawi political prisoner in Sale prison in Morocco, went on hunger strike on Saturday 1st November to protest against abuse and negligence by prison officials. He is also protesting against the continued delay in setting a date for his trial which has been going on for over a year since his detention. He has repeatedly complained about his treatment, but the conditions under which he was kept have not improved.

Embarek was detained on 28 September 2013, in his house in the centre of Gulimim in southern Morocco, in front of his son, as a result of his political opinion regarding the conflict in Western Sahara and his regular participation in peaceful demonstrations. He is now accused of possession of arms, vandalism and production of bullets.
