PRESS RELEASE: New Briefing: Retraction of freedom of expression in Morocco: The Case of Al-Adl Wa Al-Ihsan

IHRC expresses concerns over the continued repression of freedom of expression in Morocco, especially in the context of Al-Adl Wa Al-Ihsan , the Justice and Spirituality Movement (JSM), the most popular Islamic organization in the country. The briefing looks at the recent trials of two influential JSM members, Nadia Yassine and Rachid Ghoulam, and the continued imprisonment of some other JSM members on political grounds.

In addition, you can also download IHRC's Prisoners of Faith campaign pack, The Moroccan 12, which brings to light the extraordinary suffering of 12 JSM student members who have been imprisoned for the past fifteen years, solely because of their affiliation with the organization.
