Sahara: Polisario hit by another major setback in London Court of Appeal

Today Thursday, at the London Court of Appeal, Polisario and the pro-separatist NGO ”WSC” were slammed by the irrevocable rejection of a request against Morocco-Great Britain Association Agreement.

In fact, the London Court of Appeal irrevocably rejected the appeal of the pro-separatist NGO ”WSC” against a previous decision of the Administrative Court, rejecting its request which attempted to question the association agreement linking Morocco to the United Kingdom.

This third setback since last December for Polisario, confirms the validity of the association agreement linking the two Kingdoms, which benefits Morocco’s territorial integrity and development of all regions, from north to south.

According to analysts, the court’s decision also highlights the repeated failures of the real instigator of the conflict over the Moroccan Sahara, who, despite his malicious intentions, is failing in his attempts to persuade the British judiciary to re-examine the post-Brexit trade agreement concluded and supported by the two Kingdoms.

Indeed, trade between the two countries has grown steadily since the agreement was signed, with bilateral flows peaking at £2.9 billion in Q3 2022, up £1 billion on the same period last year.

The Association Agreement between Morocco and the United Kingdom, signed in London on October 26, 2019, has been in force since January 1, 2021.

It restores, in the context of bilateral relations, all the effects that the two countries granted each other, within the framework of the Morocco-EU Association Agreement. It thus ensures the continuity of trade between Morocco and the UK after December 31, 2020.

Enabling the two Kingdoms to establish a structured partnership on a long-term basis, with operational and institutionalized cooperation instruments, and driven by a shared ambition, the Agreement constitutes a guarantee for Moroccan and British companies undertaking economic and commercial relations in all sectors of cooperation.
