Spain: Halt Summary Pushbacks to Morocco

Spain should immediately halt summary returns of migrants to Morocco from its North African enclave, Melilla. Spain should also investigate evidence that Guardia Civil officers beat migrants at the border fence.

Spain’s right to secure its borders doesn’t give it carte blanche to abuse migrants. The government in Madrid and local authorities in Melilla need to stop these illegal pushbacks and take action against any Guardia Civil officers who use excessive force against migrants.

During the week of August 11, 2014, large groups of migrants from unidentified sub-Saharan African countries attempted to scale the six-meter-high triple fence that separates Morocco and Melilla. Media reports, citing Spanish local authorities in Melilla, indicate that approximately 700 people attempted to cross into the enclave on August 12, and 600 on August 13.
