The African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights (the Court) has rejected a bid by a Ghanaian national to have Morocco expelled from the African Union to protect the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic whose territory Rabat claims as its own.

The case had been brought before the Court by Mr Bernard Anbataayela Mornah, a Ghanaian national and the National Chairman of the Convention of People’s Party a political party in Ghana, who sued eight countries that have ratified the protocol of the Court, and are members of the African Union, arguing they failed to protect Sahrawi after the AU re-admitted Morocco into its fold in 2017.
