The Gdeim Izik group is a group of political prisoners from Western Sahara arrester prior to, during, or after the dismantlement of the Gdeim Izik camp in 2010. This report concludes that the group of political activists from Western Sahara are, and have been for nearly seven years, on arbitrary detention.
