The African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (the Commission) meeting at its 55th Ordinary Session held in Luanda, Angola, from 28 April to 12 May 2014, has adopted a resolution on the situation in the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic. In its resolution (282), the Commission deplores the growing number of Sahrawi victims of anti-personnel mines, the spread of which prevents freedom of movement across Western Sahara and continues to endanger the lives of the local population. It also calls on the States to offer their good offices to demine the areas contaminated by anti-personnel mines that represent a continuing source of danger for the population of the Territory.
