“Neither Amnesty International nor the 17 newspapers which published the information contained in the report considered it useful to cross-check it with the Moroccan authorities or to collect their version,” noted the Moroccan authorities who speak of a ‘’real diplomatic-media destabilization operation targeting Morocco.’’

The Moroccan authorities have “categorically” refuted Amnesty International’s allegations that in a report accused “without tangible evidence” Morocco of having used a spy software produced by an Israeli company to “spy” Moroccan journalist Omer Radi.

Rabat has denied being in possession of the software in question, developed by the Israeli firm NSO.

The human rights organization’s report that the journalist’s phone was hacked has been the subject of several publications in the international press but not Morocco’s denial.

For the North African country, these accusations are just ‘’unfounded allegations’’  which ‘’are not accompanied by ‘’any hard evidence.’’

“Neither Amnesty International nor the 17 newspapers which published the information contained in the report considered it useful to cross-check it with the Moroccan authorities or to collect their version,” noted the Moroccan authorities who speak of a ‘’real diplomatic-media destabilization operation targeting Morocco.’’

The Moroccan authorities have “firmly” urged the executive director of Amnesty in Morocco, Mohammed Sektaoui, to provide as soon as possible “tangible evidence” supporting these accusations.
