Rabat - Taoufik Bouachrine’s trial took place on Thursday, March 8, in Casablanca’s Court of Appeal. The judge adjourned the trial three times after heated confrontation escalated between the prosecution and Bouachrine’s defense. Bouachrine arrived late to his first court appearance on March 8, prompting the judge, Bouchaib Farah, to postpone the hearing for half an hour, reported Akhbar Al Yaoum, noting a number of Moroccan political and media figures in courtroom attendance.
