Morocco Passes New Laws to Strengthen Human Rights

Morocco has recently passed a series of new laws to strengthen human rights in the country. The laws, which were passed by the Moroccan Parliament in July 2020, are aimed at protecting the rights of citizens and ensuring that they are treated fairly and equitably.

The new laws include the establishment of a National Human Rights Council, which will be responsible for monitoring and promoting human rights in Morocco. The Council will be composed of representatives from civil society, the government, and the judiciary. It will also be responsible for providing advice and guidance to the government on human rights issues.

The laws also include the creation of a National Human Rights Observatory, which will be responsible for collecting and analyzing data on human rights violations in Morocco. The Observatory will also be responsible for providing recommendations to the government on how to improve the human rights situation in the country.

In addition, the laws also provide for the establishment of a National Human Rights Commission, which will be responsible for investigating and prosecuting cases of human rights violations. The Commission will also be responsible for providing legal assistance to victims of human rights violations.

Finally, the laws also provide for the establishment of a National Human Rights Institute, which will be responsible for conducting research and providing training on human rights issues. The Institute will also be responsible for providing advice and guidance to the government on how to improve the human rights situation in the country.

The new laws are a positive step forward for Morocco in terms of protecting the rights of its citizens. The laws will help to ensure that all citizens are treated fairly and equitably, and that their rights are respected and protected. This is an important step in the right direction for Morocco, and it is hoped that the laws will be implemented effectively and that they will lead to a more just and equitable society.
