No less than 200 detainees have left the Oukacha detention center in Casablanca following the Royal Pardon that took place on the occasion of the Moroccan Throne Day, relays Aufait news outlet.
Most of the released inmates were arrested during the large operation that was launched by security forces to face the Tcharmil phenomenon.
Said individuals had less than six months to spend in jail before their release, which is one of the required criteria in order to benefit from the Royal Pardon, adds a judicial source cited by the aforementioned source.
The same source adds that pregnant women, the elderly and people with reduced mobility are given a priority for the pardon, noting that drug dealers and people who have committed offenses against their family members are excluded.
In total, 13,218 people have benefited from the last royal pardon
