I certainly hope so. To be a civilised country also means to abolish the death penalty. (sorry for the Americans who happen to live in certain states)

A BBCnews article states that "there is a sense the nation is now ready to make an historic move."
Morocco would be the first country in the Arab world to do so.
There were no executions since 1994, so Morocco was already walking down civilization lane.

Most political parties are in favor of the abolition (except of course the islamist PJD)
Let's hope that it will actually happen and that the government doesn't back down.

    j’espère comme toi que la peine de mort soit abolie au maroc. Je crois qu’il est grand temps.
    On ne dispos d’aucune étude sur l’avis de l’opinion publique sur la question, ais je crois qu’avec une bonne volonté politique le gouvernement peut facilement y arriver. Ce qui fera rentrer le Maroc dans le rang des pays qui ont eu le courage d’abolir et ne plus tuer au nom de la loi.

    Bonjour Larbi,

    I hope you dont mind that my French isn't that good.
    Reading French is quite easy, its just the writing and speaking part whats breaking me.

    But thank you for your kind words!
    And thank you for your blog.
    Its one of the few French-language blogs I actually read!
