"Reports by several human rights organizations as RFK Center and the Moroccan Association of Human Rights (AMDH) have made clear the Moroccan authorities of occupation launch a campaign of repression against Saharawi defenseless civilians ", said President adding that this wave of repression coincides with visit to the region by The UN Secretary General's Personal Envoy for Western Sahara, Mr. Christopher Ross.
