Need For A Fair Referendum In Western Sahara

EDM number 141 in 1991-92, proposed by Audrey Wise on 12/11/1991.

That this House notes that 6th November 1991 is the 16th anniversary of the invasion and occupation of Western Sahara by Morocco; recalls that there will be a referendum in Western Sahara in January 1992 under the auspices of the United Nations; and calls on the King of Morocco to respect the timetable of the peace plan and stop all obstruction of the United Nations, not to delay further the work of the Identification Commission and to cease immediately the resettlement of 170,000 Moroccans in the occupied territory, to stop police from intimidating the population registered in the census of 1974, to proceed with the exchange of prisoners of war as agreed in the peace plan, to co-operate with the United Nations in order to create the conditions for a fair and internationally credible referendum, and to allow independent observers and the press entry to the territory at all stages of the peace plan.

This motion has been signed by a total of 94 MPs.
