The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI) stated today that the Moroccan authorities started using the precautionary incarceration as a penalty against activists in fabricated cases, for the opinion prisoner Jadda Boubkar, his sixth investigation session is yet to come on the 17th of September meanwhile being precautionary held in the Moroccan “Taza” prison.

 

Boubkar was arrested on the 21st of July 2008; he then received six mock investigation sessions on the following dates of the same year 6th 13th and 27th August and 3rd of September, all were conducted by the Judge at “Taza”; he was not charged with any specific crimes, he was neither released, nor referred to court for any defined legal offense.

 

The ANHRI confirms that the precautionary incarceration, which is becoming hardly ever used now worldwide, started to be very popularly in use in Morocco; the Moroccan authorities know well that from one just trial Boubkar will acquit him, for he has committed no punishable offense, except his intellectual beliefs and upholding his leftist affiliation.

 

Embracing whichever ideologies is a right that does breach neither the Moroccan law, nor the Moroccan constitution, nor even the international conventions on the civil and political rights, which the Moroccan government ratified, and hence is responsible to protect and promote the rights such conventions provide.

 

The ANHRI repeats its demand from the Moroccan government to instantly release Jadda Boubkar or to transfer him, in case of the existence of clear charges against him; it also deprecates the role the university in “Taza” played, in contributing with the security forces against the its student, Boubkar, instead of supporting him; and this opposes the classic role of any university, in defending its students and their rights especially in expressing their opinions freely, so long they do not go beyond the legal limits.
