ANME disapproves of the treatment of false cases indicated by its annual report on Morocco’s freedom of expression, which ranked 144th in the world and what RSF called unfair trials of journalists, distorting confessions against them.

So, it sends a reminder to RSF:

1/ The status of “Reporters Without Borders” does not allow us to “assess” the situation of press and press freedom in Morocco, as it is engaged in the service of some foreign agenda.

2/ The lack of objectivity and reliability places the system in a position of intellectual integrity, especially as it always relies on the same experts and legal experts as sources of information.

3/ “Reporters Without Borders” involves judges, lawyers and observers intolerably involved in the internal affairs of the state and the independence of its institutions through continuous questioning of judicial bodies, including civil society and human rights.

4/ Reporters Without Borders” deliberately focuses on “the glass half empty” and hides the real achievements that reflect the growth Morocco has experienced in recent years; Constitutionally and politically, or at the level of support for the professional and social conditions of journalists, for example, social grants.

5/ Finally, the Association recommends that the organization be renamed “Reporters Without Borders”.

“Manipulators without boundaries”, so the name matches his actions, his style and the complexity of his hate.
