UN Child Rights Committee condemns killing of children in Gaza Strip | OHCHR

In Ouarzazate, Morocco, a deeply concerning incident has come to light that underscores the broader issue of anti-LGBT+ laws in the country. A young minor, a survivor of a traumatic assault and rape spanning over three years, finds himself doubly victimized. Instead of receiving the much-needed support and justice, he was sentenced to prison after being accused of being gay.

The gravity of the situation is magnified when one considers that the muezzin, a figure of authority in a mosque, was found guilty of the indecent assault and rape of this minor. While the muezzin received an eight-year prison sentence for his actions spanning over three years, the minor’s sentence is both alarming and unacceptable. Already deeply traumatized by the violence he endured, he was sentenced to six months in prison and a fine of 2,000 DH (around 200 USD) after being accused of being gay.
