Morocco's ministerial commission on emigration meets
Morocco, Politics, 9/4/1998
Moroccan Prime Minister Abderrahmane Youssoufi chaired in Rabat Thursday a meeting of the ministerial emigration commission in charge of examining the issue of Moroccans' illegal emigration.
An official source said the commission, which was set up last year, carried on debates on current problems and was informed of its legal, political and information missions.
The commission comprises 15 ministers representing all the political parties in the government.
On Tuesday, an official source explained that the creation of this committee was prompted by the Moroccan government's desire to defend the dignity of Moroccan nationals living in European countries, in respect of international law, the preservation of assets and adherence to human rights principles.
The committee will draw up a clear approach on positions to be adopted by Morocco regarding the situation of the Moroccan community living in Europe.
Two days later, it held its first meeting to debate provisions of agreements passed between Morocco and some European states to draw up an outline for a strategy that would guarantee the rights, dignity and interests of Moroccan expatriates.
The committee debated the decisions required by the current situation, marked by deplorable conditions of Moroccans held in detention centers in some European countries. The strategy to be adopted by the committee will be submitted to a Cabinet meeting.
