Banned weeklies get publishing authorization
Morocco, Politics, 1/15/2001
The company of Two of the three weeklies which were banned last December, for "attempting to the state security," obtained an authorization to issue new publications, a judiciary source said.
"Media Trust," the company managing the two weeklies banned for publishing a document accusing leaders of the Socialist Union of Popular Forces (USFP/whose leader is currently chairing a coalition government), obtained the receipt authorizing it to publish new weeklies after it submitted all the required documents, the source said.
The source explained that under the press code, an application for a new publication has to contain an address.
Last December 11, the general prosecutor had informed the applicant that several documents were lacking in the file.
The Casablanca general prosecutor told the 2nd TV channel 2M the issue of the two banned weeklies was handled in total transparency, deploring a "fabricated campaign" by the company which wanted to obtain the receipt at the same moment it submitted its application.
