Morocco’s New Migration Policy ‘Already Bearing Fruit’: IOM Chief

Melilla- Moroccan Sentenced to 7 years in Prison for Illegal Immigration

Geneva – Morocco’s new migration policy “is already bearing fruit,” Director General of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), William Lacy Swing, said in Geneva Wednesday.

“I was glad to learn that 18,000 migrants have so far been regularized, that is to say, they have the right to work and access all public services,” Swing told MAP following a meeting with Minister delegate for foreign affairs Mbarka Bouaida.

Lacy Swing said he followed “with great interest the measures taken to implement this new strategy that the organization has supported.”

He also said he would like to pay a visit to the Kingdom to discuss with Moroccan officials the ways to strengthen cooperation between the two sides.
