Morocco: Inezgane Women Acquitted of ‘Gross Indecency’ Charges

Rabat – The two Moroccan women, who were facing charges of “gross indecency” after they were accused of wearing “immoral” clothes, were acquitted on Monday.

The Inezgane Court of First Instance in the suburbs of the southern city of Agadir found Sanaa and Siham, hairdressers-aged 23 and 29, not guilty of committing an act of gross indecency.

The two young women were surrounded last month by merchants in the open-air market of Inezgane who accused them of dressing in a disrespectable fashion.
