Morocco: Abolition of death penalty in Morocco

In Morocco, abolition of the death penalty is backed by NGOs such as the Association of Moroccan Bars, the Moroccan Association of Human Rights, the Moroccan Organisation of Human Rights, the Moroccan Forum of Truth and Justice, Amnesty Morocco, and the Moroccan Observatory of Prisons. The NGOs formed a national coalition for the abolition of the capital punishment. It is to be hoped that Morocco will soon join those countries who have turned their back on such a barbaric penalty, Samir said.
