MOROCCO: JUSTICE FOR JAILED CHILD ACCUSED OF BEING GAY
To Moroccan authorities/Ministry of Justice:
In Ouarzazate, Morocco, a grave injustice has unfolded that emphasizes the pressing issue of anti-LGBT+ laws in the nation. A minor, who endured a traumatizing assault and rape for over three years, was reprehensibly sentenced to prison after being accused of being gay.
While the assailant, a muezzin, has been sentenced to eight years in prison for his heinous crimes, it is deeply concerning that the survivor, already scarred by the assault, has been further victimized with a six-month prison term and a 2,000 DH fine after being accused of being gay.
The gravity of the situation is magnified when one considers that the muezzin, a figure of authority in a mosque, was found guilty of the indecent assault and rape of this minor.
(JB ADDS: Some holy man he turned out to be, just as bad as a Catholic Priest...)
This incident isn't isolated; it mirrors the broader challenge of outdated laws in Morocco that criminalize the LGBT+ community. We strongly call for:
The immediate release of the minor survivor. It's a travesty of justice that a child, already traumatized by assault, faces further harm due to outdated laws.
A comprehensive review and reform of Morocco's laws regarding homosexuality. The time has come to decriminalize love and ensure that the LGBT+ community is protected from institutionalized discrimination. We call upon you to consider the grave repercussions of such laws on the lives of innocent individuals, particularly the youth.
By taking action, you have the power to usher in a new era of acceptance, understanding, and protection for all citizens, regardless of their sexuality.
