The vessel carrying fish oil from occupied Western Sahara is about to enter its port of destination, after a delay of at least two days.
On Friday, 20 January, a group of protesters was waiting in the port for the vessel to arrive, but the Key Bay didn't show. Sources in the harbour now state that the vessel will either enter this evening before 8pm local time, or early tomorrow morning.
French media has been covering the case of the fish oil imports on Friday; see France 3's TV report
here (from '7:20 onwards). Local media such as Normandie-Actu
and Ouest France
also reported about this first import of fisheries products ever since the European Court of Justice concluded that the EU-Morocco Trade Deal covering such goods could not be applied to Western Sahara.
The Western Sahara liberation movement, the Polisario Front, has filed a complaint with the French and EU authorities
to uphold the ECJ's Judgment.
