Rabat - Another Moroccan expatriate in Saudi Arabia calls on King Mohammed VI to save her life and bring her back to Morocco.
Rabat – Another Moroccan expatriate in Saudi Arabia calls on King Mohammed VI to save her life and bring her back to Morocco.
A few days after the story of Lamiaa Moatamid, the Moroccan expatriate in Saudi Arabia who went to prison for suing her rapist, another Moroccan expatriate in the same country has posted a video imploring King Mohammed VI and all the Moroccans to save her from imminent death.
The Moroccan expatriate starts her video with a introduction where she urges the king to help her get away from the terrible situation she lives in:
“I’m imploring king Mohammed VI to do me justice. I don’t want anything; I just want to go back to Morocco. I don’t want to stay here. I’m dying day after day.”
The Moroccan woman says that the Saudis she works for have threatened to kill her, and have prevented her from contacting her family.
“These people are threatening that I will never see my family ever again. I can’t even talk to my family in Morocco. I don’t even know what to do. I’m pleading you, Moroccan brothers and sisters, to stand by my side. I’m imploring King Mohammed VI to find me a solution. These people will kill me and bury me here like they said.”
Like Lamiaa Moatamid, the Moroccan expatriate in Saudi Arabia that the king interceded personally to bring back to Morocco, this second expatriate says the Moroccan embassy in Saudi Arabia will not intervene despite her many pleas to them.
“They [the Moroccan embassy] asked me to send them my documents. I sent them everything, but they didn’t find me a solution. They told me to run away. If there were a way to run away, I wouldn’t stay.”
The story of Lamiaa Moatamid created an unprecedented mobilization among Moroccan social media users. The mobilization was so strong that King Mohammed VI interceded to bring her back from a Saudi prison where she was supposed to spend two years for insisting to prosecute a Saudi man who raped her.
