Summary of RFK Center's Trip to Moroccan-Controlled Western Sahara and Shrawi Refugee Camps in Algeria

Floor Speech

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Mr. WOLF. Mr. Speaker, I submit for the RECORD the preliminary observations of a Robert F. Kennedy Center Delegation to Moroccan-controlled Western Sahara and the Sahrawi refugee camps in Algeria. The executive summary paints a bleak human rights picture.

Too often the government of Morocco is held up as a regional model for human rights and tolerance. But this report, among others, including a September 17 Reuters story which reported that, ``Last week, a network of 18 Moroccan human rights organizations said rights have declined despite the adoption of a new charter proposed by the ruling monarchy last year at the height of street protests,'' once again call that reputation into question.
