Morocco Lecturer Jailed over Scandal

A Moroccan university professor accused of giving students good grades in return for sexual favours has been jailed for two years.

It’s the “first verdict in a string of high profile sexual harassment cases at universities in Morocco.”

The economics lecturer at Hassan I University, near Casablanca, was found guilty of indecent behaviour among other charges.

Four ‘more academics will appear in court’ on Thursday as part of the scandal.

The cases were highlighted by Moroccan media last year after journalists picked up messages reported to be between students and lecturers.

Activists say it’s rare for sexual harassment cases to go to trial.
