The prison director had apparently received conflicting ministerial instructions not to free Tadili.“Even if calling someone a homosexual is very serious insult in Muslim culture, there is no justification for imposing a one-year prison sentence,” Tadili’s lawyer told Reporters Without Borders by telephone at the time of the trial. “I think that what counted in the court’s eyes was that M. Oualalou, the acting finance minister, was a teacher at the royal school.” Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara Help by sharing this information last_img read more
