Rabat- Former member of jihad movement in Morocco, Issa Saber was sentenced to twenty-five years in jail for an alleged assassination. But after he spent over twenty years behind the bars, the real killer has admitted that he is innocent.
Finally, Issa Saber can breathe a sigh of relief. He was sentenced to twenty-five years in prison for a crime that he did not commit, before he was released thanks to a royal pardon during his 20th year in prison.
According to Al Massaa, everything started in 1985, when the court accused Issa of killing his boss in the jihad movement, Lahbib Adiif, in Nadour.
Yet Saber was innocent, and the real killer was his peer in the jihadist movement.
According to the same source, the real killer was recently arrested with a terrorist cell. Mohamed D. admitted that he was the murderer of Lahbib Adiif while the police were interrogating him.
Mohamed D. explained that he had killed Lahbib under orders from the jihadist movement leader, Abdelazize Noamani’s, who had accused the victim of working for Spain.
Talking to Al Massaa, Issa Saber’s lawyer confirmed that he is to demand compensation from the court for 20 years he spent behind bars.
