RFK Human Rights Responds to False Report on Moroccan Television

(February 29, 2016 | Washington, D.C.) Earlier this month, on February 19, 2016, Laayoune Television broadcast a false report that Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights had cancelled a planned trip to the region and halted all of the organization’s human rights work regarding Western Sahara.

In light of these false reports, Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights reiterates its commitment to the rights of the Sahrawi people, including the right to self-determination. Our organization will continue to work with Sahrawi civil society and human rights defenders, including Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award Laureate Aminatou Haidar, towards the full realization of human rights in Western Sahara.
