In an open letter, the Moroccan Association for Human Rights (AMDH) has called on the Minister of Interior Mohamed Hassad to stop the constant harassment of the association and the arbitrary denial of its activities, reports Akhbar Alyaoum.
The association has indicated in the letter that their central bureau denounces “the Moroccan state’s intensified campaign to crack down on the association, through the Ministry of Interior.”
According to the same source, the letter spoke of the tense situation between the AMDH and the Ministry of Interior regarding Mr. Hassad’s statement in front of the Parliament on the 15th of July 2014, where he declared that “the Moroccan human rights movement serves foreign agendas that are against national interests”.
This position has been interpreted to suspend the association’s activities in several regions that host the AMDH’s branches; a move that has been vociferously denounced by the aforementioned human rights group.
