Moroccan prisoners reach record-breaking high


On the 7th August, the Moroccan prime minister issued an official letter to the press, stating that the number of prisoners has now reached 100,004, a record-breaking figure, especially as the capacity of Moroccan prison facilities does not exceed 64’600 beds, despite continuous cell expansion efforts, the letter reads.

A prison in Dar-el Salaam holds 10,877 inmates, despite a maximum of 3800 beds. Authorities will employ reintegration programs to alleviate pressure.
