Man sentenced to 3 years in prison for obstruction of Royal procession

Rabat appeals court sentenced a young man to three years in prison for obstructing the Royal procession.

The man was arrested on March 26, when he tried to the Royal procession of King Mohammed VI, and his host King Abdullah II of Jordan, to hinder on the way to the Royal Palace in Rabat.

The charges against the young man's range from the interference from the Royal procession and violation of public order to a threat to the safety of the public.

Recently, the Moroccan authorities, in particular the Royal security forces, indicated to be uncompromising with regard to irresponsible behaviour of this nature.

The Ministry of the Interior in June 2016 published a warning against the danger of obstructing the circulation and the passage of the Royal parades, stressing that "such actions of the perpetrators and the life of others in danger, and it is a crime which is punishable according to the law ".

It seems that this sentence should also as a warning for others who commit to such an act.
