Only this would enable Morocco’s judicial system to respond in a fair and democratic manner to defamation suits.”The press freedom organisation added: “In this particular case, how can the appeal court judges ignore the fact that their decision is liable to jeopardize the newspaper’s survival? We continue to wonder about the motives of Morocco’s judges, who are very severe towards the country’s independent press.”The lower court ordered the exorbitant damages and fine on 25 March in a libel case brought against the newspaper by four deputy prosecutors in the northern town of Ksar Al-Kébir over an article that said regional officials had attended a supposedly gay marriage ceremony. The officials were not identified.Nini told Reporters Without Borders: “This ruling is very serious because it sets a legal precedent for press cases. Tomorrow, another newspaper could be ordered to pay a similarly astronomic sum. This ruling is a disgrace for my country.”Morocco was ranked 122nd out of 173 countries in the press freedom index which Reporters Without Borders issued on 22 October.On the same subject:26.03.2008 – Record damages award against editor of Morocco’s leading daily Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists April 28, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information News RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance to go further October 30, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Astronomic damages award against leading Arabic-language daily upheld on appeal Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara Receive email alerts
