UN workers banned from Morocco ordered to leave the country

Eighty-four people including United Nations workers in Moroccan-held Western Sahara have been ordered out of the country for using the term “occupation” while describing the territorial status of the Western Sahara.

 

According to MAP, the official state news agency, a “large portion” of staffers flew out last Sunday morning to Spain. The workers were given a three-day deadline to leave the country.

 

Morocco is also declining to receive a three million dollar funding from the United Nations.

 

Stephane Dujarric a spokesman for the United Nations called the order unprecedented.
