Event

Supporters of journalist Omar Radi plan to gather outside the Court of Appeal in Casablanca on Tuesday, September 22, to demand his release from jail. Activists are anticipated to congregate from 09:30 (local time) on the day Radi's trial for various charges is due to begin.

A heightened security presence is expected in the vicinity of the courthouse, and the demonstration could lead to localized transport disruption.

Context

Radi was arrested on July 29 on espionage and sexual assault charges. Radi has denied all charges and his supporters claim that the authorities have concocted the charges to silence an outspoken critic of government policies. Radi was previously arrested in 2019 for his support of anti-government protests.

Advice

Those in Casablanca are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate transportation disruptions, avoid all protests or demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
