Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- Al Istiqlal party has staunchly criticized the Moroccan government for refusing to repatriate Moroccans stranded abroad, with many of them getting expelled from hotels and sleeping on the streets in miserable conditions.
In a statement shared by the executive committee, Al Istiqlal called on the Moroccan government to assume its responsibility in organizing repatriation flights for Moroccans stranded around the world.
“We deplore that the government has not taken any decision to lift the suffering of what thousands of Moroccans endure for two months, forced to live far from their families and often in difficult conditions,” the statement reads.
A few days ago the Moroccan head of government Saadedine Othmani said that “a total of 27, 850 Moroccans are stranded abroad.”
The head of government noted that their return “will take place after the reopening of borders,” which triggered a wave of criticism and condemnation.
