UA 187/94 - Morocco: detention of possible prisoners of conscience / fear of unfair trial: Mohamed Hrach Errass, Mbarek Tausse, Ahmed Kikche, Ali Aken, Said Jaafar, Omar Darouiche, Omar Ochna

, Index number: MDE 29/003/1994

There is concern that the seven members of a human rights organization and trade union named above, detained after peaceful Labour-day demonstrations on 1 May 1994, may be prisoners of conscience and that their trial may fall short of international fair trial standards. At the first hearing in Errachidia on 5 May they were granted bail by the court, but the prosecution appealed, and they remain in detention. The trial is now set for 17 May.
