A 36-year-old woman confessed to the court in September 2018 that she had an extramarital affair with the boxer, according to Al Massae newspaper.
The woman, who received the same sentence, claimed to have had a physical relationship with the athlete after he promised to marry her. She stated that they would meet in an apartment in Rabat that Mohamed Rabii rented.
Under Article 490, having sexual relations with a person of the opposite sex outside of marriage is punishable by one month to one year in prison.
Rabii said he knew the plaintiff a year ago. He wanted to marry her but gave up after his family objected to their marriage on the grounds that she was divorced with a child. He also said he informed her of his decision to end their relationship, reported Al Massae.
Rabii, 25, won a bronze medal in the welterweight event at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
