Morocco: Shadow of impunity: Torture in Morocco and Western Sahara
Moroccan legislation outlaws torture and the authorities have repeatedly promised to eradicate it, yet existing safeguards in police custody and courts are routinely flouted and accountability remains elusive. Courts often fail to act when first confronted with signs of torture, reinforcing the climate of impunity. This report contains numerous disturbing testimonies from survivors of torture and other ill-treatment. Amnesty International is calling on Morocco’s authorities to use the current judicial reform process to strengthen anti-torture safeguards and ensure that torturers are held to account.
