Rabat – The Moroccan national Khaled Ouaham was designated as member of the Advisory Board of the Oslo Court in the Northern European Kingdom of Norway, in the first such move in Morocco’s history.
Khalid is reportedly the first Moroccan to be appointed to the position of a consultant at the Advisory Board of the Oslo Court of Norway.
10 such positions, Khalid Ouaham included, were recently shared out equally between men and women.
Khalid Ouaham was nominated by the Oslo Municipality to speak up for the Norwegian community at the Oslo Court and to have a say in the legal cases set to be filed during the period from 2017 to 2020.
Khalid was reportedly appointed to the position thanks to his relentless efforts in support of the Norwegian community.
Residents of the multi-cultural Søndre Nordstrand district, in Oslo, voiced their trust in Khalid as the best candidate for the post.
The Moroccan national will provide non-binding advice to Oslo’s Court of First Instance and Court of Appeal.
Khalid Ouaham, also chairman of the Coordination Board of the Moroccans of Scandinavia and Northern Europe, attributed the move to his benevolent and humanitarian activism.
He pledged that he will leave no stone unturned until human rights and justice are restored in the region.
According to the Norwegian law, those eligible for the position must be aged above 21 and below 70 years-old. Terms are four years for most advisors. Proficiency in the Norwegian language is also a prerequisite.
