That this House recognises the deep concern amongst human rights lawyers and experts ontorture across Europe about the 15-year sentence handed down by the Rabat court sitting at Sal to the dual Belgian-Moroccan national Ali Aarrass after a trial that appears to have ignored all due process, relied solely on torture evidence, and which took place a year after the Spanish authorities ignored an instruction by the UN Human Rights Committee not to extradite him to Morocco while the Committee was considering his case; and calls on Her Majesty's Government to follow the lead of the Bar Human Rights Committee, Freedom From Torture and a number of distinguished Queen's Counsel to make urgent representations to the Moroccan government to secure justice for Mr Aarrass and his family.
