The Moroccan Façade

A CPJ Special Report: Politicized court cases, media law, harassment undermine a nation’s press gains.
New York, July 3, 2007—Moroccan authorities have come to rely on a stealthy system of judicial and financial controls to keep enterprising journalists in check, the Committee to Protect Journalists has found in a new report, “The Moroccan Façade.” In a series of politicized court cases over the last two years, at least five Moroccan journalists have been hit with disproportionate financial penalties, five have been handed suspended jail terms, and one was banned from practicing journalism. “Eight years into King Mohammed’s reign, Moroccan leaders need to put words into action to demonstrate their professed commitment to democratization and press freedom,” write the authors, CPJ’s Joel Campagna and Kamel Labidi.
