The reports concerned the everyday reality of Sahrawi children under the occupation and the violation of their rights by the Moroccan authorities, as well as a detailed account of Sahrawi political prisoners, including: illegal trials, the state of their health and the recent deaths of Sahrawis in custody, including Mohamed Lamin Haidala.

Adala UK’s President, Sidi Ahmed Fadel, and the Adala UK European Coordinator for Political Prisoners, Isabel Lourenço, met with representatives from the UN Office of the High Comissioner for Human Rights as well as with representatives from Swiss civil society organisations and diplomatic representatives.
