Morocco: HM the King Sends Message to Participants in Night in Memory of Late Assia El Ouadie

Rabat  — HM King Mohammed VI sent a message to participants in the night in memory of late Assia El Ouadie, held on Thursday evening at the Rabat Mohammed V theatre by the Mohammed VI Foundation for inmate reintegration and the National Council for Human Rights.

In this message, read out by HM the King's Advisor Zoulikha Nasri, the sovereign expressed to Assia's family, friends and relatives his esteem for the deceased and for her outstanding contribution to serve lofty human causes.

Late Assia El Ouadie was a symbol of the Moroccan woman who devoted her life to citizenship and building the Moroccan society we all long for and giving concrete substance to a solidarity-based society where dignity and human rights prevail, the message underlined. "She fulfilled the mission of defending marginalized social segments, mainly inmates, and ensuring their reintegration."

The deceased was magnanimous in giving without expecting any payback and she developed a relevant legal sense, a social vision and human dimension, showing abnegation in fighting for the inmate cause, mainly juvenile delinquents, the sovereign said.

She practiced her job as a lawyer with professionalism and merit and was, in parallel, involved in community life, armed with a spirit of integrity and initiative to defend human rights in general and convicts' right in particular, which enabled her to become a member of the Advisory council for human rights, the monarch added.

Given the special interest she took in inmate matters, We decided to make her a member of the board of directors of Mohammed VI Foundation for inmate reintegration, said the sovereign, underlining that Late Assia's career was marked by her dynamism, perseverance and team work in fulfilling her duties with devotion and selflessness.
