Moroccan king sets commission to compensate missing and victims of arbitrary detention
Morocco, Politics, 8/17/1999
King Mohammed VI has ordered the setting up of an arbitration commission to set compensations to victims or inheritors of missing persons and arbitrary detention, the royal palace's official spokesman, Hassan Aourid, announced on Monday.
The commission comprises three judges, four members of the Human Rights Advisory Council (CCDH), a delegate of the Interior Ministry and a delegate of the Justice Ministry. It will be chaired by a judge from the supreme court.
The commission will hold its first meeting this Tuesday to set provisions of its working methods before starting to study applications for compensation to be submitted starting next September 1.
Last October, the CCDH published a list of 112 cases of missing persons. A total of 56 of these persons died, 12 others are still alive, enjoying freedom and some of them live abroad. The fate and the identity of 44 others is still unknown. Thirteen among the latter have no link with political or unionist activities.
