Moroccan woman in prison for a double marriage

In Morocco, a woman must appear in court on April 20 for having married a second time. She had not yet divorced her first husband and was therefore charged with adultery, breach of trust and falsification of divorce documents, according to the local press.

A 30-year-old Moroccan teacher tried to enter into a second marriage without having legally separated from her first husband, which cost her detention. She was arrested on February 17th.

Her first husband, who was serving a prison sentence, was released from prison in August 2018 and found that his wife had divorced him and married a second husband with whom she had a child.

The Moroccan woman has been accused of adultery, breach of trust and fraud, as well as falsification of administrative documents. Under the verdict of the criminal court of the Meknes court of first instance, the woman was kept imprisoned. She lives in the women’s section of the Toulal local prison in Meknes.

The woman’s defense sought a bail bailout, but the claim was rejected by the court. The accused should then appear in court on April 20, the day of the next hearing.

The issues raised by the defense will also be discussed on April 20, among which prescription prosecution and settlement of a lump sum compensation to his first husband, against the discontinuation of prosecution, it is specified.
