Washington – The US administration said it “supports” reforms adopted in Morocco, “particularly the recent progress on military trials.”
“The United States supports Morocco’s reform efforts, particularly the recent progress on military trials”, said Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affair, William V. Roebuck, during a hearing at the House of Representatives on “US policy toward Morocco.”
The US official recalled that “in the joint statement issued on the occasion of the November 22 visit of King Mohammed VI to Washington, DC, President Obama welcomed the King’s commitment to end the practice of military trials of civilians”.
“We are pleased to see this commitment made concrete in the Moroccan government’s initiative to reform the Military Code of Justice and to exempt civilians from trial by military tribunals through a draft law which has moved to Parliament for approval,” added Roebuck.
