Morocco: Unprecedented legal reforms must uphold human rights
Amnesty International welcomes the Moroccan authorities’ stated intention to amend the Code of Criminal Procedure and the Penal Code as part of unprecedented plans to reform the country’s justice system, with the hope that it will lead to a better protection of human rights. Unveiled by Morocco’s Minister of Justice and Liberties in September 2013, the Charter for the reform of the judiciary notably aims at strengthening the judiciary’s independence as well as harmonizing national laws with the Constitution and the international human rights treaties to which Morocco is a state party.
