Justice – Morocco’s attorney general warns on judicial errors related to “arrests over traffic violations”

President of the Public Prosecution Office, Mohammed Abdennabaoui, warned all prosecutors and attorneys within Moroccan courts against the application of the law on physical coercion towards drivers violating the traffic code.

Abdennabaoui, however, notified the authorities in charge on that matter, as many citizens filed complaints against the physical coercion applied by police patrols while dealing with a number of traffic violations, that some of violators claim to be uncalled for.

Abdennabaoui has also called the prosecution body to review the arrest warrants in all physical coercion cases, in order to ascertain the conduct of legal procedures and make sure that fines are paid in full respect of the law.

“Mohammed Abdennabaoui issued his notification on physical coercion in order to make it up for the judicial errors committed by his fellow prosecutors when arresting a number of drivers with no valid legal grounds, regardless of the fact that most arrestees claim not receiving any warrants in this regard”, legal expert said.
