Two close collaborators of Horst Köhler went, on January 17 and 18, to Laayoune. "Elfi Klabunde, German, and Hélène Halling, Swedish, met the representatives of the Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees of the United Nations," says a source familiar with the matter.
"They then took a UN plane to Rabouni camp. Their stay in Polisario camps will come to an end on January 25th. They should also meet with members of the UNHCR delegation, "added the source.
The Moroccan side has hopes that this visit will be the prelude to a census of the population of the Tindouf camps, a Security Council claim since 2011.
