Journalist Jailed For Six Years.

Moroccan court has sentenced a prominent journalist and critic of the government to six years in prison.

Omar Radi was convicted of sexual assault and spying – charges that he denied.

Rights activists have accused the authorities of using the justice system to target and silence dissident voices.

Mr Radi’s work has involved investigations into corruption, and he’s condemned Morocco’s human rights record.

Shortly before charges were brought against him, Amnesty International found that the authorities had used Israeli-made spyware – called Pegasus – to tap into his phone. Morocco denies this.
