Rabat – June 27, 2013 (MAP)
The editorials of the Moroccan dailies issued on Thursday address various topics, including judicial reform, the fight against drug trafficking and the situation of the political landscape amid the crisis between the components of the coalition government.
Under the title “justice on paper,” Aujourd’hui le Maroc says that “the justice reform requires, among other objectives, restoring the judiciary’s credibility with the citizens.”
“Many litigants, whether ordinary citizens or companies, prefer more and more settling their problems out of court by alternative methods such as mediation, instead of following the court proceedings not only because of the latter’s slowness, or because of lack of confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the courts, but also because of the futility of verdicts as they fail to be not executed.”
On the fight against drug trafficking, L’Economiste writes that “the new ranking established by the United Nations Office against Drugs and Crime will again feed questions about the quality of the anti-drug system.”
The record shows a yawning gap between police and judicial resources mobilized, which are substantial resources in the Moroccan case, and the results obtained, it wonders.
Nonetheless, the fight goes ahead. It moves slowly, but it advances though, it says.
Al Ahdath Al Maghribia writes that that the Moroccan politicians engage in confrontations without respect for any pre-established rule, going even as far as to exchange virulent criticism and sometimes displaced words.
It adds that these politicians continue to convey lies and rumours against their opponents and even utter often implicit or explicit insults.
