Broaden trial observation mandate

The National Human Rights Council (CNDH) welcomes the unprecedented Court’s decision and the positive interaction of the Public Prosecution, the defence and the civil party with the CNDH request to allow its observation team to attend the closed hearing session of the criminal appeal case of Mr. Omar Radi related to sexual violence, held on Friday 18 February 2022.

The CNDH Regional Commission of Casablanca-Settat Region had submitted a request, on behalf of the CNDH Chairperson, on Monday 14 February 2022 to observe the relevant closed session.

None of the parties objected to the CNDH request. Thus, the Court decided, after deliberation, to accept the CNDH’s request and allowed it to conduct the observation of all phases of the hearing session.

The CNDH notes with satisfaction the decision of the Court and the parties to the case, which will further broaden the trial observation process of all kinds under this decision.
