Rabat – A French pedophile who sexually abused nine Moroccan children has been sentenced to two years in prison, according to Agence France Press (AFP).
The elderly French identified as Jean-Luc G must also pay 40,000 Dirhams in damages to the Moroccan Human Rights Association (AMDH) and a symbolic Dirham to the benefit of other associations.
One of the plaintiffs’ lawyers was quoted by AFP as saying they are planning to appeal the court’s ruling.
The French sexagenarian was arrested two months ago in Marrakech after a passing- by police patrol noticed his dubious behavior towards a child in a semi-dark place.
According to media reports, a photo of the child showing him wearing only his underwear was found in possession of the French national.
The police reportedly listened to the statement of the child who said that the elderly man was permanently forcing him into having sex with him, adding that his brother was also subject to the same shocking practices.
