Recently we have received testimonies from Moroccans regarding more than 4600 prisoners in Morocco whom have been imprisoned due to political disruption accusations, but never received official court judgement for their crimes.

Testimonies indicate a great number of these individuals are mentally ill and are imprisoned due to unknown grounds. Mentally ill individuals require special attention and expertise to deal with their mental illness, and imprisoning them without any reason only decreases their chances of becoming better or cured.

We ask the Moroccan authorities to look into the matter and either clarify the charges against these prisoners or facilitate their medical treatment. In case these individuals are imprisoned for legitimate reasons, medical treatment should be provided to them.
