American website "Freedom Support" said the Hacker, Chris Coleman, drew global attention recently to the real Moroccan diplomacy, through authentic confidential documents, which content is the huge bribes that Morocco has succeeded to mobilize, in order to support the joining of the African Union.

Same website added that a Moroccan diplomat succeeded in establishing a network of relationships, behind-the-scenes, in every summit of the African Union, and through these letters that were sent later to his boss in Rabat, the cash was delivered at least in one occasion for some African delegations, to tip the balance in favor of Morocco.

"Despite the blatant trampling on the objectives of the Constitutive Act of the African Union, which states the defense of the sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence of the Member States, and respecting the existing borders during the achievement of independence, and the prohibition of the use of force or threat, through using force between the union's state members , but Morocco and through the military force, still occupies a large part of the territory of a founding member of the African Union, namely the Western Sahara".

Freedom Support added that some political pundits see, as it appears in various media, that Morocco's membership in the Union is a tacit acknowledgment of the Saharan Arab Democratic Republic, as the Moroccan parliament ratified the Constitutive Act of the African Union and the SADR is a member state in it.

On the other hand, some other analysts have another position, on the grounds that such a move will engender the destruction of these African institution, as Morocco's position is contrary to the basic charter of the African Union.

"Director of African Affairs in the Moroccan Foreign Department, Moha AliTakma, briefed the Moroccan Minister in charge of Foreign Affairs, about his business plan, as he sent a memorandum to his minister on May 5, 2014 on "proposals for the preparations that were made to the African Union Summit" that will be held in Addis Ababa, and proposes giving individual envelopes worth 5,000 euros for each friend, and he lists some of these "friends" who represent the delegations of some African countries".
