The Ministry of Interior expressed its absolute rejection of the irresponsible statements and malicious allegations made by Maati Monjib, stressing that these acts aim to mislead national and international public opinion and harm Morocco’s human rights image.
A report by the Ministry of the Interior stated that, upon obtaining temporary release by a judicial decision, Maati Monjib made, in a video tape circulated on some websites and social networks, “malicious statements and allegations through which he attacked state institutions, by promoting extraneous concepts and terms that do not represent our national institutions in any way, such as the terms “political police” and “political security” and the existence of “a hidden structure which threatens the safety of Moroccans.”
In this regard, the communiqué affirmed that the work of security institutions remains framed by constitutional provisions, international charters and national laws, “which entitles them to exercise their noble duties in maintaining public order and protecting people and property, with all that is required by the principles of transparency and the rules of security governance, especially since their efficiency is the subject of praise “inside the country as well as abroad, as institutions known for their devotion and selflessness in serving the country and the citizens.”
The ministry announced its absolute rejection “of such irresponsible statements that remain aimed at misleading national and international public opinion and harming the human rights image of the Kingdom,” considering that “adopting such degrading methods will not discourage state institutions from continuing the proper and strict application of legal requirements in the face of whoever believes that having a dual nationality means legal immunity.”
The communiqué concluded that “all Moroccans are equal before the law and are obligated to abide by it, without any favoritism or discrimination.”
