Several activists informed the delegation that passports of some Sahrawis have been confiscated by Moroccan officials at international airports, preventing them from traveling abroad (6). The delegation raised this issue with Ministry of Interior officials, who indicated that all such cases, if any existed, would be solved immediately and that people concerned could recover their passports at any time. In Laayoune, the delegation presented a list of nine specific cases of confiscation of passports to the Wali, who indicated that he would inquire about the passports and hand them over to their owners within a few days. However, one month after the mission returned to Geneva, the passports were still withheld. "

We are also aware that the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has brought the issue of Daddach's passport to your government's attention on repeated occasions, but has to date not received a clear reply.

Therefore, the undersigned organizations wish to appeal to the government of Morocco to return Daddach's passport to him and allow him to travel to Norway to participate in the Rafto anniversary celebrations. We sincerely believe that failing to do so would further damage Morocco's reputation internationally and detract from the image of a country intent on ending entrenched practices of authoritarianism and oppression of voices of dissent.

Daddach's voice is a moderate and responsible one, demanding respect for the basic rights of his people, but at the same time seeking to build bridges with Moroccan society. There is no legal reason that he should not be allowed to travel to Bergen this weekend, and we believe it is also in Morocco's best interest to let him travel. You can make it happen by making sure that the passport is to be immediately returned to Daddach, and that no other formal or informal travel restrictions are to be imposed on him. We would also like to stress that it is our opinion that the passport never should have been confiscated in the first place.

Sir, please be assured of our highest consideration and sincere greetings.

Sincerely,

Internasjonalt skattesamarbeid fungerer – men ikke for det globale sør

Finansminister Vedum og utviklingsminister Tvinnereim skaper et optimistisk bilde av internasjonalt skattesamarbeid, men virkeligheten fortjener et mer kritisk blikk. Mens de markerer milepæler og roser OECD, unnlater de å adressere det viktige spørsmålet om hvem som faktisk har en stemme i utformingen av disse reglene.

Motstanderne av akademisk boikott gjør det enkelt for seg selv

Det er enkelt å være prinsipielt for akademisk frihet og mot akademisk boikott. Går man derimot inn i den konkrete situasjonen i Israel og Palestina blir det mer krevende.

Derfor er ­akademisk boikott riktig

Diskusjonen om akademisk boikott av Israel intensiveres nå ved norske universiteter og høyskoler. Stilt ovenfor realitetene i Palestina mener vi at dette ikke-voldelige virkemiddelet ikke bør stå uprøvd.
