Two Men Arrested in Tangier for ‘Engaging in Homosexual Acts’

On Feb 27, 2017 Morocco World News reported: Tangier’s Primary Court sentenced two men last Friday after the leak of nearly a one-and-a-half minute video, which became viral on Whatsapp, showing the two men engaged in full sexual acts.

The two accused men are a university student and a real estate agent.

Morocco has repeatedly imprisoned men under penal code article 489, which criminalizes “lewd or unnatural acts with an individual of the same sex.”

The same article punishes homosexual conduct with sentences between six months and three years in prison and fines of MAD 120 to 1200.
