An American NGO fears the worst in the highly sensitive case of Mustapha Salma Ould Sidi Mouloud, inspector general of the Polisario police. According to the Leadership Council for Human Rights, Mustapha may undergo the same fate as Mahfoud Ali Beiba, President of the Sahrawi National Council (CNS – equivalent of Parliament) of the Polisario, who was victim of a suspicious death in 2nd July 2010. Shortly before he disappeared, Ali Beiba had announced his intention to support the Moroccan Plan for the Sahara autonomy, and his wish to return to Morocco.
It is also the case of Ould Sidi Mouloud, who has been barred from returning to his home in Tindouf as he has openly declared his support to the Moroccan autonomy plan for the Sahara, on last 9th August in Smara. The Leadership Council for Human Rights, one of the leading NGOs for Human Rights in the USA, said Thursday to be concerned about the life and physical integrity of Ould Sidi Mouloud. The President of the American NGO, Kathryn Cameron Porter has, moreover, declared to be shocked by the threats made against him by two Polisario Front leaders, Omar Mansour and Brahim Ghali, representatives of the rebel movement, respectively in Paris and Algiers. Cameron Porter, who had visited Tindouf camps, said having heard stories about the torture and abuse committed by the Polisario, and visually witnessed the wounds left by these actions. For these reasons, she said, “I can only expect that the Polisario leadership attacks everyone who dares to interfere with its personal desires to get rich. For the president of the Leadership Council for Human Rights, any attack against Ould Sidi Mouloud would simply be a further evidence of the Polisario and its leaders’ sinister nature. The American NGO has finally called the human rights international community to closely follow up the course of Salma who left on Thursday the Mauritanian Zouerate city for Tindouf. In short, the NGOs calls for the right of free movement to be granted to Ould Sidi Mouloud and thousands of other sequestered Sahrawi hostages in Lahmada camps.
