Polisario Front appreciates French Council of State decision on agri imports from Western Sahara

Earlier this week, Polisario Front, which calls itself the legitimate representative of the Saharawi people, welcomed the decision of the French Council of State on agricultural imports from the territory of occupied Western Sahara.

“The Polisario Front has taken note of the decision of the Council of State of the French Republic of June 9, 2022 issued at the initiative of the Confédération paysanne regarding agricultural imports from the territory of Western Sahara and welcomes this very good decision,” it said in a statement, thanking the Confédération paysanne which has referred this issue to the French Council of State.

“The Polisario Front warmly welcomes the action of the Confédération paysanne, a noble trade union which acts on the basis of solidarity between farmers, and which therefore cannot accept that fruits and vegetables from occupied territories, in violation of the rights of the Saharawi people, arrive on European territory as if they were from Morocco,” the statement added.

The Confédération paysanne had asked the French government to issue a decree banning the import of cherry tomatoes and melons harvested in occupied Saharawi territory, on the grounds that Western Sahara does not belong to the Kingdom of Morocco, as ruled by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in 2016 and 2018, stressing that “presenting these products as originating from Morocco violates EU law and the rulings of the Court".
