Morocco: Conduct an impartial investigation into the unlawful death of Yassine Chabli

Moroccan authorities should make sure that their investigation into a man’s unlawful death in police custody on 6 October 2022, is impartial and thorough. They should hold accountable, in a fair trial, the police officers that tortured the victim and did not provide him with adequate medical care. While authorities took some positive steps to investigate the death of the man and prosecuted four police officers, both the investigation and prosecution are flawed and do not meet international standards. The investigation was partially conducted by the officers of the same police station where Chabli died in custody, thus casting doubt on its independence and impartiality. The perpetrators were tried in the first instance in Ben Guerir for simple violence and negligence and not for torture.
