Gdeim Izik civilian retrial begins

The court of appeal in Rabat today begins the retrial of the Gdeim Izik case, which was previously tried in a military court. Details here. The case arises from security force fatalities in connection with the destruction of a Sahrawi protest encampment. The retrial is required because Moroccan law has been changed to bar civilians from being tried in military courts.
