Covid-19: Aminatou Haidar Violates International Health Guidelines & Travel Regulations
For failing to show a vaccination certificate or a negative PCR test as required for all inbound/outbound travelers, Royal Air Maroc staff operating in Hassan I airport in Laayoune refused on Thursday to allow Polisario agent Aminatou Haidar to board a plane heading to Casablanca and Madrid.
The anti-covid precautionary travel regulations enforced in Morocco to contain the spread of the virus apply to all Moroccan citizens and all passengers without any exception.
In order to board a plane bound for Spain, all passengers are required to provide a valid vaccination pass or a negative PCR test as stipulated by the Spanish aviation regulations.
Furthermore, the health guidelines set by the Spanish authorities allow access to their territory only to foreigners with a vaccination certificate or a negative PCR test.
The Moroccan authorities have never prevented any separatist from travelling abroad. However, Aminatou Haidar is twisting the facts in a bid to mislead the public opinion. She cannot defend the indefensible and her blatant breach of international travel regulations.
