Mounia Moustaqim, a Moroccan citizen from Fez, accused two police officers of abusing her physically in a very dehumanizing way in a police center in Mont Fleury, Fez.
In a statement to Morocco World News, Mounia Mostaqim claims that her fourteen years old son was arrested and charged with police insult, kidnap, and rape.
When she rushed to find out about her son, she was allegedly pulled by her hair to the police car and taken to the local police center in Mont Feury where she was be abused.
According to her account, on January 27th, she was isolated in one of the offices of the local police center where she allegedly received a torrent of verbal and physical abuse for more than two hours.
She was beaten in different parts of her body and threatened to be charged with drug-selling and prostitution if she reveals their deeds. She even claims that one of the two police officers urinated upon her from head to toe.
As to the arrest of her son Achraf, she says: “can you believe that a fourteen years old boy can kidnap a twenty-eight years old woman- who has three girls- and rape her? Let’s suppose he did, why should they beat me? There is law in the country.”
It should be noted that Mounia Moustaqim has submitted an official complaint to the general attorney explaining all that she went through in the police center of Mont Fleury.
She was also invited by the State Security and gave statements about the incident.
After the dissemination of a video where she talks about her abuse, Mounia gained the support of many human rights associations such as Moroccan Association for the Elimination of Violence against Women and Moroccan Association of Human Rights.
“The message that I want to convey is the following: if there is justice in this country, I demand my right; I want to recover my dignity which is humiliated,” Mounia said.
