In this sense, M'Hamed Jad-dad also conveyed the condemnation of the Frente POLISARIO to the attitude of European leaders who have done everything possible to avoid judicial decisions, abuse their political and financial power in contravention of the law. Decision of December 21, 2016 of the European Court, which had already ruled that Morocco and Western Sahara are two distinct and separate regions and that any economic activity in the region without the consent of the Saharawi people is illegal.
