Zine El Abdine Erradi

HRD & Member
Moroccan Association of Human Rights

Zine El Abdine Erradi is a member of the Moroccan Association of Human Rights section in Paris. He was also a founding member and former vice president of the Moroccan Association of Human Rights section in Sidi Ifni city in southwest Morocco. Due to the increasing threats to his liberty, he left for France in September 2015 where he has obtained asylum status.

In response to the February 2011 pro-reform protests in Morocco, inspired by sister movements in Egypt and Tunisia, King Mohammed VI promised reform, including the “strengthening of human rights in all their dimensions, political, economic, social, cultural, environmental, and developmental”. The new constitution, which was voted in by the country’s electorate in July 2011, prohibited torture and ill treatment, arbitrary detention and enforced disappearances, guaranteed greater equality for women and introduced other positive legal reforms.
