The absence of a number of lawyers supporting the defendants in the file of the secret sacrifice, which is being heard by the Court of Appeal in Casablanca, raised the resentment of the prisoners’ families as well as the governing body at the hearing on Monday.
The ruling body was forced today to postpone the discussion of the file after asking lawyers who attended the session to invite their colleagues to attend the next date. She also called on the defendants to tell their defense to attend to avoid the continuation of the postponement of the case, especially as it knew many delays throughout the month of Ramadan, after the death of one of the lawyers who are in the file.
It is expected that the next session, scheduled for Monday, June 10th, will see the defense begin to submit their pleadings to acquit their clients of the charges against them. However, their absence again will make the integration of the members of the Commission difficult, especially since the defendants are related to each other and made statements about some of them in the control records As well as during their appearance before the Commission.
The defense of the detainees in this case raised the issue of translating the experience carried out by the interests of the National Laboratory of the Royal Gendarmerie on the material “Mimi”, which the Royal Gendarmerie of the group of waterfalls booked after the arrest of the accused in the case.
