Guilty silence of the Algerian ambassador
In his letter to the Security Council, Mr. Hilale the obvious omissions and the guilty silences that the Algerian ambassador had posted without embarrassment on the subject of travel, financing, indoctrination, the military training of the so-called Sultana. Khaya and many facts that directly suggest Algeria’s responsibility and complicity in this activist’s agitations and voice for armed violence against civilians and separatism.
These alleged omissions by the Algerian diplomat reveal his inability to provide tangible answers to the Moroccan ambassador’s irrefutable and substantiated accusations. Which proves, if it is still needed, Algeria’s leading role in the direct recruitment of the few separatist elements who, without convincing through a peaceful discourse in accordance with Moroccan law, shamelessly spill over into the calls and the call for murder, the military . action and attack on public and private property. This is totally prohibited by international law, in particular Article 19 of the UN Convention on Civil and Political Rights, of which Algeria is nevertheless a part.
Algeria, indisputable party
The Moroccan ambassador’s response to the rejection of his Algerian counterpart is a real burden, overwhelming for Algeria’s primary responsibility in this regional conflict, from its inception in 1975 until today.
This accusation from Mr. Hilale, in contrast to the rhetoric and non-diplomatic language of the Algerian diplomat, is characterized by historical details, immutable truths, irrefutable evidence, unmanageable indelible diplomatic writings, which are listed in the Security Council (the letter from Algeria). RP to UN Secretary-General, 19 November 1975, S / 11881), actions taken (CCPR / C / DZA / CO / 4 and CCPR / C / 134 / D / 2721/2016), decisions interfering in the internal affairs of other countries, reports by the Secretary-General (S / 2002/178) and Security Council resolutions (2468, 2494, 2548 and 2602).
Mr. Hilale stressed that Algeria has been mentioned 5 times, in the same way as Morocco, in the last four Security Council resolutions that break down the Algerian illusion of a pseudo-observer status.
Algeria’s reprehensible blockade of the political process
In his letter, Mr Hilale also exposes Algeria’s basic maneuver, which, by attacking the UN, is trying in vain to abdicate its direct responsibility in the current blockade of the round table process.
Sir. Hilale lists one by one the many manifestations of Algerian obstruction, the most indisputable of which is his letter to the Security Council of October 2021, in which he vehemently rejects any reference to any obligation on his part to participate in the round table. Thus, the Moroccan ambassador confronted Algeria with his lies, which the international community no longer believes, especially when it shamefully seeks to hold the UN responsible for blocking the political process. An act considered indecent and described as a low maneuver by Mr. Hilale and a tactic that even the friends of Algeria criticize as a disregard.
The incomparable human rights situation in Algeria and the Moroccan Sahara
To the false and unfounded accusations of the Algerian ambassador about alleged human rights violations in the Moroccan Sahara and his call to extend the mandate of MINURSO to include monitoring the human rights situation A man “like all the other PKOs”, Hilale responded first and foremost with law and referred to the last 13 Security Council resolutions, all of which welcome “the measures and initiatives taken by Morocco, the role taken by the Commissions of the National Human Rights Council of Dakhla and Laayoune, and the interaction between Morocco and the mechanisms of the specific procedures of the United Nations Human Rights Council ”.
He also mocked his Algerian counterpart’s blatant ignorance of the nuances and differences in the nature and mandates of UN peacekeeping operations. He reminded him that MINURSO is a traditional PKO with the sole mandate to monitor the ceasefire, adding in this regard that MINURSO is by no means the only UN peacekeeping operation that does not have a human rights component, along with seven other rights. peacekeeping operations out of the 12 currently operational.
Finally, Mr. Hilale the Algerian ambassador to focus instead on the serious human rights violations in his own country, which has aroused concern and condemnation among UN officials and human rights organizations.
The High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, stated in her annual report to the Human Rights Council on March 8, 2022: “In Algeria, I am concerned about the growing restrictions on liberties, including the number of arrests of human rights defenders, members of civil society and political opponents.”
In other words, Mr. Hilale’s message to the Algerian representative that when Algeria’s house is made of glass, his diplomat should not throw stones at his neighbor.
