A delegation from the Spanish organisation Asociación Internacional para la Observación de los Derechos Humanos (AIODH) met with the mother of Mr. Sidahmed Lemjiyed in Morocco this week. According to the mother, Oumilamnine Rguibi, Mr. Lemjiyed is currently in a terrible health situation.

"He has serious kidney problems, and a hand impossible to use due to untreated injuries. He also has problems with his leg, making it hard to walk, as well as with the stomach, something which causes him continous vomiting".

The family of Mr. Lemjiyed is said to have requested several times before the Court that he be transfered to a hospital, but they have not received any replies, according to the report.

It was impossible for the delegation to visit Mr. Lemjiyed in jail.
