Morocco slams HRW report as biased
Morocco deplored the bias shown by Human Rights Watch in its annual report in which it sidelined with separatists and ignored facts on the ground.
The International rights watchdog has derailed from the principles of impartiality which were supposed to underpin its work, the interministerial body in charge of human rights said.
HRW has also failed to shed light on the suffering inflicted by Algeria on a population forsaken to a separatist militia that trades in their ordeal, it said.
Morocco also accused HRW of putting forward uncorroborated claims of rights violation adding that HRW attempts to undermine the independence of Morocco’s penal justice system.
By rehashing rumors, HRW also criticized the freedom of expression in Morocco. “Once again, instead of revealing and scrutinizing the facts, and presenting them objectively, HRW has chosen the easy way out by engaging in a political campaign hostile to our country.”
