Morocco Reveals First Press Freedom Report

Morocco's first annual report on press freedom highlighted the progress that the country has made in the last year.

Communications Minister Mustapha El Khalfi said that 2012 was characterised by an attitude in the courts that encouraged reconciliation in cases involving journalists, and the creation of a system of sanctions that does not threaten the economic structure of press establishments.

The report also claimed that no publication was banned or censored during the past year, and no journalist was sent to prison.
