Moroccan Journalist Omar Radi Jailed, Surveilled After Criticizing Gov’t

Moroccan authorities arrested Omar Radi on what press freedom advocates call “retaliatory charges.”

Now a court has charged Radi with undermining state security by receiving foreign funding and collaborating with foreign intelligence, and also charged him with rape.

He is reportedly being held in a prison that is a COVID hot spot, and has not been allowed to have visits from his lawyer or his parents. (📹: Democracy Now!)
