Moroccan Blogger Arrested

This time, Moroccan democracy at its best:

Police arrested blogger Abdellatif Ouaiss, last Sunday, after they had searched his house on Friday evening in Temara and seized his laptop computer. He was presented in front of the Public Prosecutor on Tuesday.

His family did not know the charges against him, but a close source confirmed that Ouaiss, who signed the Procès-verbal under duress, was arrested because of an article published in his English-language blog in which he criticized the ten-year rule of King Mohammed VI. [Source]
