November 2016.The borders kill.

After the jump in Ceuta where more than 200 people crossed on the 31th of October, the repression the repression is intense. And yet the borders are not impossible to cross as the EU and Morocco want them to be. Many pateras arrived in Spain this month, and several people have died or are badly injured after their attempt to cross.

Report about the situation of irregular migrants
Office of the Moroccan Human Rights Association Fes/ Saïs Fès le 4 Novembre 2016
Résumé :
”Considerable Sub Saharan migrant influx in Fes Many injured, amongst them minors, of which some have been hospitalised. They have been victims of physical violence from the Moroccan border police during their attempt to jump the fences at Ceuta the 31st of October 2016 and the 1st of November. A Guinean minor suffered injuries from an incident in which the Spanish Guardia Civil fired blanks at them, as they were pushed back to the Moroccan territory.
The office of general direction of Fes/ Saïs is making the two countries, Morocco and Spain, aware of the necessity to respect their international obligation to guarantee migrants’ rights, in particular the rights of migrant minors. An investigation will be opened, in coordination with Spanish human rights associations, following these statements and the disclosure of the violence used to stop migrants from entering Spanish territory, in order to determine where the responsibility lies.”

Patera with 40 migrants intercepted by the Mauretanian police


AMDH (Moroccan Human Rights Association) – Nador Section (translated from French):
The traffic of migrants and refugees continue at the border point of Beni Ensar in Nador. The day before yesterday ten migrants were arrested in just one vehicle, and trusted sources have indicated to AMDH Nador that three other Sub Saharan migrants hidden in a smuggler’s car were also arrested.
The Moroccan police have also arrested seven Syrian refugees trying to cross the border in a smuggler’s vehicle. Of course, they had all paid to attempt crossing the border.
AMDH also learned about the arrest of a woman using a motor bike to help Syrian refugees enter.
We ask ourselves how all the investigations opened by the police and all the arrests of smugglers have still not dismantled all these smuggling links.

At the moment where the Spanish authorities seek to export the problem of unaccompanied minors in Melilla towards Nador, an association called “Association of Moroccan residents in Spain” has gotten a meeting in Melilla with the city authorities, to demand European financing of a deportation centre for minors at Béni Ensar. One more detention centre! What a shame, as the association hides behind “humanitarian reasons”, but is at the service of the Spanish authorities and their exclusive and discriminating migration politics.…/%d8%b4%d8%a7%d9%87%d8%af-%d8%a8%d…
