Morocco: Authorities must drop any spurious charges against independent journalist Omar Radi
Following weeks of harassment by the Moroccan authorities, the Prosecutor of the Court of First Instance in Casablanca charged Omar Radi, an investigative journalist, with harming national security and rape on 29 July. Amnesty International has serious concerns that these new accusations are trumped-up charges meant to harass Omar Radi, smear his reputation and silence him. His ongoing harassment underscores the threats activists and journalists in Morocco face for exposing human rights violations.
