Tarascon Court Ruling: Another Setback for Separatists after so Many Others in Europe, Elsewhere – Rwandan Analyst

The ruling issued by the Tarascon Court (France) condemning the Confédération Paysanne, a French trade union organization used in the judicial harassment of the Morocco-EU agricultural agreement, is “a new setback inflicted on the separatists after so many others in Europe and elsewhere,” Rwandan analyst André Gakwaya said Wednesday in Kigali.

The ruling is a major diplomatic and judicial victory for the Kingdom, confirming its sovereignty over its southern provinces, noted Gakwaya, pointing out that this new victory is part of a diplomatic breakthrough at international level, after the number of countries questioning the legitimacy of the separatist group has increased in recent years, particularly in Africa.

The Rwandan analyst told Morocco’s MAP news agency that “history, facts and reality plead in favor of the Kingdom’s territorial integrity”.

This ruling “is therefore another setback inflicted on the separatists, after so many others in Europe and elsewhere,” he said, citing in particular the rejection last May by the London Court of the appeal lodged by the NGO “WSCUK” against a previous decision by the Administrative Court, which had rejected a proposal to block the partnership agreement signed between Morocco and the UK, on October 26, 2019 and which came into force on January 1, 2021.

Recent crises, notably the Covid-19 pandemic and its repercussions, have shown the extent to which nations need unity and solidarity, and that divisive issues are no longer on the agenda, he argued, noting that the African Union (AU) must seriously address the legitimacy of the “polisario” and the exclusion of the so-called “sadr” from the AU.

The Moroccanness of the Sahara has been confirmed by numerous international judicial bodies, he added, underlining the exclusivity of the United Nations Security Council’s handling of the regional dispute over the Moroccan Sahara.
