To : the President of the Military Court in Rabat

RE: Plaintiff Ahmed Aliouat

We, the below signatories, leaders and representatives of the tribes of the Moroccan Sahara and the heads of the tribes identified in the Moroccan Sahara as authorised to determine the prerequisites of the confirmatory referendum in the Moroccan Sahara, act as witness for a son of the tribe, Ahmed Aliouat. Currently detained in Salé prison, Ahmed is a descendant of tribe of the sons of the Moroccan Sahara, known for its historic faithfulness to the glorious Moroccan Crown, despite the migration of his ancestors to the north of the Kingdom of Morocco and their later return to the Moroccan Sahara in the south of the kingdom in response to the call from the deceased Hassan II (may God bless his soul) to confirm the Moroccan Sahara and to participate in the referendum.

Taking into account all of this knowledge and that of this family and our historic coexistence, we confirm that son of the tribe, Ahmed Aliouat, and his entire family, young and old, have always been loyal to king and country and have demonstrated this over the years. This family is known in society and amongst the other tribes for its commitment to defending the patrimony and all that is sacred in our country of Morocco. They always have and always will be the first to come to its defence.

Bearing in mind all of the above, we ask that the honourable judges take our testimony into account and look favourably on the case with compassion and mercy, due to the sad state and situation of the parents of Ahmed Aliouat and all his family and his tribe. All are astounded by the situation knowing Ahmed as well as they do and, given his virtue and his excellent conduct and manners, all are convinced that he is innocent of the charges laid against him. We trust Allah will bless you for your benevolence.
