Morocco: The Attack on Projects Official of AMJI is a Continual Violation of Freedom Expression in the Country

Thursday 25 September 2014, by The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI)

Cairo: 25 September, 2014

The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI) denounces the attack on the projects official in the Moroccan Association for Investigative Journalists (AMJI), Hesham Al-Mansouri, yesterday, September 24.

On Wednesday, September 24, some unknown attackers attacked Hesham Al-Mansouri, a projects official in the Moroccan Association for Investigative Journalists (AMJI), while he was going out of a hotel in Rabat. He was immediately taken to the hospital. Noticeably, Hesham Al-Mansouri was in the hotel to prepare for the assessment meeting of AMJI. The attackers were waiting for him outside the hotel and attacked him but without inspecting or stealing him.

“The continual attacks on activists and human rights advocates is a flagrant violation by the authorities, as they don’t provide them with necessary protection. It also refers to their severe neglect to the activists and defenders’ rights to personal safety while they are doing their job,” ANHRI says.

ANHRI demands from the Moroccan authorities to take the procedures necessary for protecting the activists, human rights defenders and journalists on the job. Also, they should investigate the perpetrators of attacks and bringing them to trials in order not to allow the recurrence of such violations again, ensuring their right to freedom of expression in the country.
