  • Mornah sues 8 countries over Morocco’s ‘colonization’ of Western Sahara

Mr Bernard Anbataayela Mornah, the National Chairman of the People’s National Convention (PNC) has, through his lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana San, filed a suit against eight countries at the African Court of Human and People’s Rights Holden at Arusha, Tanzania against what he alleges as Morocco’s colonization of Western Sahara.

The defendants in
this suit are Benin, Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Mali, Malawi, Tanzania, and Tunisia.

The 26-page application and legal submissions filed by the lawyers of Mr.
Mornah under Articles 1,2,7, 13 And 19, 20, 21, 23 of the African Charter On Human and Peoples Rights and Articles 1, 3,4, 7, 27 & 29 of the Constitutive Act of the African Court seeks to enforce the legal duty on the defendants to defend the sovereignty, territorial, integrity and independence of Western Sahara.

The crux of Mr.
Mornah’s claim is that Morocco has refused to respect the colonial boundaries, continues to interfere in the internal affairs of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR), and is currently illegally occupying, harboring, mining, and selling one of the world’s richest fisheries stock, abundant phosphate rock mines and oil reserves of Western Sahara.
