Despite women comprising a quarter of the judiciary sector in Morocco, female prosecutors and magistrates are still underrepresented in the profession.

Morocco has its first head prosecutor at a first instance court, after Rabha Fath Nour was recently appointed as head prosecutor at a Moroccan first instance court. 

The appointment of Nour as the King's Prosecutor at the Mohammedia Court of First Instance is a historic first for the Moroccan judiciary system. 

In spite of efforts made in the area, women remain heavily underrepresented in judicial positions. 

Out of 104 appointments, validated by King Mohammed VI as head of the Supreme Council of the Judiciary, six have been granted to female judges. 

Rabha Fath Nour’s appointment, however, is not like the others. The position of King's prosecutor at a court of first instance has never been held by a female magistrate.

Rabha Fath Nour will be fully able to participate in all legal matters, as well as criminal cases. 

The step on the long road to achieving gender equality will aim to meet the goals of provisions of Article 19 of the Constitution, and Article 65 of the Organic Law of the Superior Council of the Judiciary (SCJP).

The SCJP is the organization that is responsible for managing the careers of judges, and is bound by its laws to follow the principles of equality and parity.

Since the recent reform of the judiciary, the SCJP began announcing vacancies among women and offering them the opportunity to hold leadership positions. Prior to this, women judges were required to wait for a recommendation, which affected their chances for success.

Morocco had its first female judge, Zhor El Horr, back in 1979. Since this appointment, judicial positions are gaining greater appeal to Moroccan women. 

Today, Morocco has over 1,000 female judges, out of a total of 4,175 magistrates working in the country’s courts. 

According to data dating back to 2015, 836 of the women in the field were judges and jury members, while 164 operated as prosecutors or deputy prosecutors.

Despite women representing a quarter of the judiciary professional field, no Moroccan woman has ever been appointed head prosecutor in a first instance court. 

Female prosecutors are often delegated as civil, commercial, and criminal prosecutors. 

This new appointment will mean that the first instance court of Mohammedia will be fully led by a woman for the first time in Morocco’s history. 

As a result, Field professionals are advocating for women to be allocated to at least a quarter of high-ranking positions in the field, proportionate to their presence on the field. 

In order to manage the challenges ahead, Morocco appears to need to increase female representation in its judiciary, particularly at the top of the ladder. 

Morocco World News reached out to Aicha Aitelhaj, a civil prosecutor and president of the Moroccan Association of Women Judges (AMFJ) for a statement on the matter. 

The civil prosecutor described the new nomination as "a dream come true", as the association has been advocating for a female head prosecutor of a first instance court.

“Most female judges have been shown to excel in various judiciary fields, relating to commercial, civil or criminal cases. Yet they are still outnumbered in nomination and higher positions in the field,” she stated. 

Female judges are applying to these positions in significant numbers."Those who applied for vacant positions and were not selected should have, at least, been suggested for the courts closest to them," laments the president of the AMFJ who recalls, moreover, that calls for candidacy were not open before establishment of the organic law 100-13, relating to the Supreme Council of the Judiciary.

Women judges have been proven to add a much needed personal perspective to their judicial actions and experiences, bringing a more comprehensive and empathetic perspective on cases relating to female struggles, such as sexual assault, harrassement, gender discrimination in the workplace, and the enforcement of the constitutional rights of Moroccan women. 

Women judges are more likely to advance the legal protection of women’s basic rights in Morocco as well as on the global scale.

Not all women in the judicial field share this opinion, as some say that the law, being an impartial body, is meant to be applied regardless of the genders involved in the case, and those of the competent authorities. 

Yet, female judges in several jurisdictions have already played an important role in addressing discrimination against women and violations of women’s rights.

Morocco's recent discovery of a 1.3 million year-old artifact places it chronologically closer to previous archaeological discoveries across East and South of Africa.

A team of international scientists have discovered  the oldest Acheulean tool in North Africa- a type of distinct oval and pear-shaped stone tool manufacture linked with Homo erectus.

According to the researchers who participated in the discovery, the artifacts were found outside of Casablanca, dating back to 1.3 million years ago, 600,000 years before Acheulean culture was properly established in the region. Other such tools discovered in the region have been dated 1 million years ago, namely the stone artifacts of Tighennif in Algeria, and the Thomas Quarry I-Unit L in Casablanca.

"This is very important because we are talking about prehistoric time, a complex period with little data," said Abderrahim Mohib at a press conference in Rabat. In the process, the team also discovered "the oldest human occupation in Morocco," a variant of Homo Erectus, he added.

The discovery results in further enriching  the ongoing discussion about the emergence of the Acheulian culture in Africa, Mohib explained at the press conference.

Mohib is the co-director of the joint French-Moroccan project "Prehistory of Casablanca," which brought together a team of 17 international researchers from Morocco, France, and Italy participating in the discovery.

The discovery has shifted the timeline of the beginning of the Acheulean culture in Morocco, putting it closer to the beginning of the cultures in South and East Africa- 1.6 million and 1.8 million years ago respectively.

It has also clarified the technological differences between the Moroccan discoveries and their Algerian counterparts, which are dated at about 1 million years back. Morocco's 1.3 million-year-old Acheulean tools explains the lack of certain developments observed in the artifacts discovered in Algeria.

The recent dating work done on the discoveries "will undoubtedly be called upon to play a major role in the understanding of the Acheulean emergence and its pan-African dynamics," noted the paper published in Scientific Reports, an extension of the Nature magazine.

Tensions between Algeria and Morocco predate the sucess of Morocco's diplomacy in sub-Saharan Africa.

Isabelle Werenfels, a senior fellow in the Middle East and Africa Division of the Berlin-based Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (the German Institute for International and Security Affairs) published recently a short “study” titled “Maghrebi Rivalries Over Sub‑Saharan Africa: Algeria and Tunisia Seeking to Keep Up with Morocco.” The supposed “study” is at best a white paper, not even a policy note, although some of its parts aspire to be so. 

It has no references at all and lacks scholarly rigor, not showing in any way how it’s different assumptions are warranted by facts or publications or political statements. Nonetheless, it is worth considering it as it gives us a sense of how some German think tanks view the Maghreb’s relations with sub-Saharan countries, as these opinions most probably inform decision-making processes in Berlin, especially at a moment when Germany is aspiring to play an emergent role in geostrategic affairs.  

The paper provides interesting comparisons between the sub-Saharan Africa policies of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, but it makes wildly unsubstantiated assumptions and therefore useless policy recommendations. It states that “Morocco is the Maghreb state with the most sophisticated sub-Sahara policy” but its “Sub-Sahara policy has heightened tensions with Algeria and awakened ambitions in Tunisia.” 

Tensions between Morocco and Algeria were higher in the past when diplomatic relations were cut off and both armies confronted each other in Western Sahara in the late seventies of the 20th century. Tensions are high nowadays over Western Sahara but only secondarily over Morocco’s Africa strategy. It is true that Algiers is wary of Morocco’s successes in Africa, but its leaders seem to be confident Algeria could catch up any time soon, especially if oil prices go up, and if it could capitalize on its strategic alliances with South Africa, Nigeria, Ethiopia and Angola. 

The policy recommendation of Isabelle Werenfelsis in this regard is as wild as the central thesis: “The European Union should treat these trends as an opportunity for African integration and triangular EU/Maghreb/Sub-Sahara cooperation. This could counteract Algeria’s feeling of growing irrelevance, strengthen Tunisia’s economy, put Morocco’s hegemonic ambitions in perspective, and thus mitigate the negative dynamics of the rivalry.” 

The author does not provide any evidence for “Algeria’s feeling of growing irrelevance.”

Meanwhile, as one 2017 report put it, “From the statements of its political leaders, it seems that Algeria thinks it is at the heart of things African, both economically and politically. The feeling of irrelevance on the part of Algerians may be a good theory that could explain the ex-Minister of Foreign Affairs’ (Abdelkader Messahel) attacks on Morocco’s successes in Africa on October 20th, 2017.” 

But the same Messahel stated at the same event (the Summer University Forum of Algerian Business Leaders) that Algeria is a story of incomparable economic successes in Africa. It would have been useful if Isabelle Werenfels was intellectually and academically generous enough to tell us how she did arrive at this conclusion, on what basis, what sources, documents or classified or declassified information. 

The wildest of all assumptions is “Morocco’s hegemonic ambitions.” The author surreptitiously mentions “Morocco’s hegemony” in the introduction but never goes back to it in the body of the text to provide evidence. The supposed hegemony of Morocco is a recurrent theme in Algeria’s opposition to Morocco’s anti-colonial efforts in Western Sahara. 

Because France cut a big chunk of Morocco’s Eastern Sahara region in 1955 and kept it under French control, hoping to stay in Algeria forever, Algeria is always scared that Morocco could start claiming back Eastern Sahara once it solidifies its sovereignty over Western Sahara. Hence its depiction of Morocco’s desire to complete its territorial integrity as expansionist or hegemonic. 

The Spanish extreme right buys that theory as well, especially when Morocco claims that Ceuta and Melilla are Moroccan cities occupied by Spain since the 16th century. To translate Moroccan anti-colonial efforts as “hegemonic”, on the part of Isabelle Werenfels, smacks not only of proto-colonialism but of a perverted logic of reversing roles so that victims become bullies. 

Because this is a recurrent Algerian accusation and when juxtaposed to Algeria’s alleged feeling of irrelevance (a non-scholarly touchy-feeling statement), it becomes clear that Isabelle Werenfels is sensitive to Algiers’ point of view. There is nothing wrong or sinful with being pro-Algerian or having a soft point for things Algerian (here is Isabelle Werenfels’s Twitter title banner: “Works on the @SWP_MEA. Has a very weak spot for ”). 

Retweets are not necessarily endorsement, but academic norms and scholarly standards, both very well ingrained in a long German tradition of rigorous and objective research, should be observed when making claims of this nature, especially when we know that they could influence decision makers. 

As I said above, in the absence of references and facts, the document is nothing but a working white paper not worthy of publication by a serious organization like the Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik. Some Moroccan newspapers called it, mockingly, “a call for Morocco to halt its African policy for Algeria to catch up with it.” I would call it “a desperate appeal from a pro-Algerian author to the EU to stop Morocco from outstripping its neighbors in its Africa policy.” A bizarre call, for sure. But what can’t you do for your soft spots, even when you are a scholar?

The decision seeks to curb the surge of COVID-19 cases following the worrisome increase of contamination over the past two weeks.

The Moroccan government decided to strengthen lockdown measures, starting Friday, July 23, following the exponential surge of COVID-19 cases.

The government said the night curfew (11 p.m. and  4:30 a.m.) will be maintained in keeping with the recommendations of the Scientific and Technical Committee.

The measures seek to strengthen the necessary preventive measures to limit the spread of the COVID-19.

A government statement emphasized that movement after 11 is banned at the national level.

Persons working in vital and essential sectors and those in need of urgent medical care are excluded from this ban.

The government decided to reinforce restrictions on intercity travel unless travelers present a   vaccination certificate. 

With the new decision,  restaurants, cafes, theaters, swimming pools, and other public venues must operate at 50 percent of their capacity. 

The statement emphasized that gatherings and activities in open spaces that include more than 50 people have to be authorized through a permit from local authorities.

The government concluded that the threat of the pandemic "still exists and continues unabated, especially with the emergence of new strains" in Morocco.

Over the past two weeks, Morocco recorded between 1,000 and 2,000 cases, with the Delta variant representing 50 percent of new cases.

The  government stressed that “the current situation requires     strict adherence to all directives of the public authorities and all the precautionary measures adopted by the health authorities, in terms of physical distancing."

We’ve always believed that to be smarter and get good grades we must study hard and sometimes for long prolonged hours. However, that usually does not end up being an effective method and might even cause many problems that are difficult to overcome.

Whatever the major or subjects that you have trouble studying for, you have to recognize that studying harder is not necessarily the best method for you. Rather, you have to think more about study techniques, strategies, and habits that are more suitable and effective for you.

When it comes to tight deadlines, cramped lessons, and assignments, even studying your favorite subject does not sound fun. this can lead to procrastination, increased stress, anxiety, and poor performance in school.

Adopting new and smarter study habits can help you effectively study for your courses and prepare for your exams in an easy and more enjoyable manner.

Study in short regular sessions

Studying for long hours during the weekend or till the very few last days before the exam can cause mental and physical fatigue that will negatively affect your performance in school.

In addition, knowing before that you will have to endure intense studying can decrease your motivation and lead to poor concentration, two major factors that help in studying.

Instead, what you can try for a more efficient and less tiring studying is to space out your study sessions and dedicate 30 to one hour of studying each day over several days and weeks depending on the subjects you are studying.

For example, when it comes to history, languages, or science you can take 15-20 minutes every day to revise and repeat what you have done that day or week in school, which will help you remember the information more efficiently.

For subjects such as physics and maths, you can make a goal to solve 4-5 problems each day instead of working on that subject alone for hours before your exam date.

Set realistic study goals

Setting goals is important, whether for studying or for life in general. It can clear confusion and help you move easily from one task to the next without wasting a lot of time.

Setting goals also help us feel more confident and in control of our situation and allows us to feel a sense of accomplishment whenever a goal is achieved no matter if small or big.

However, it is also important to remember that we have to set realistic goals that can be achieved in real life instead of ones that are almost impossible to achieve. To make your studying process more enjoyable, learn to daily and weekly set realistic goals that you can obtain.

For effective goal setting, you can use the SMART method, which means that your study goals must be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound.

Try to make a weekly goal list during the weekend as well as a daily goal list during each night to help you start your day or week motivated and help you be more productive.

Test yourself regularly

What is a better way to prepare for an exam than to quiz yourself? Learn how to quiz yourself after each study session that you have, it can be just for 5-10 mins with questions that test the knowledge you acquired during your study.

This method can be a fun way to learn and a great technique in helping you be more focused and motivated in your study sessions.

Making mistakes in your mini personal quiz however should be okay, because it will help you learn more and allow you to not make that mistake again when you’ll take the actual exam.

Create a study friendly space

An uncomfortable environment that is cluttered and noisy can be distracting and can prohibit you from having an effective or enjoyable study session.

Creating the ideal space for studying is a smart and essential step in preparing your brain to study. Try multiple places to study in whether at home or around campus. Make sure you figure out the right time you enjoy and prefer studying in, it can be in the early morning or late in the evening.

You should make your study space comfortable to sit in, not too cold or hot, and of course not noisy. If you are used to listening to music while studying try to opt for soft music or lo-fi study music that can be less distracting.

Teach others

Teaching others the course that you are studying is another smarter study technique that will help you in remembering the information better by explaining it in your own words.

Studying to teach will help you absorb the material more efficiently so you can be able to teach it and explain it to others.

You can teach what you learned either in a study group or with a study partner. Your study group or partner will help you retain the information better by posing questions that you can answer with a more simplified explanation and examples. You can even teach others using your notes.

Reward yourself

One of the most essential things to keep in mind while studying is to be kind to yourself as well as reward yourself whenever you achieve a goal or complete a task.

Studies might get harder and harder as you grow up, it is not easy to obtain great grades, maintain a social life, and have hobbies and leisure all at the same time.

Nonetheless, it is not impossible, following smarter study strategies, sleeping well, eating good, and rewarding yourself for doing your best can help you build an effective routine that will make your study time more enjoyable and efficient which will of course lead to your personal and professional success in the long term.

Brahim Ghali was allegedly in possession of a valid ID earlier this year when he visited Spain, Spanish media have revealed. 

Spanish police confirmed he was admitted to a hospital in Logrono under the false identity of “Mohamed Benbatouche,” but they also reported Ghali was in possession of a valid Spanish ID with his legal name that was issued in 2006 and renewed in 2016. The DNI card listed his place of origin as Smara.  

The information was reported in a letter to the Spanish National Court from the General Police Information Commissariat. The letter also states that Ghali was previously registered in Spain’s Foreign Identification Number system. 

Spanish lawyer Antonio Urdiales, who filed a formal accusation against Ghali for using false documentation during his trip to Spain, stated that Ghali’s entrance into Spain to renew his DNI in 2016 coincided with formal accusations for genocide brought against him after his inauguration as president of the disputed Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic.

In a letter Urdiales sent  to the 7th Court of Instruction of Zaragoza, he petitioned the court to seize files related to the issuance of Ghali’s DNI and NIE documents. The lawyer also proposed that the judge order military officials at Zaragoza air base to investigate whether the military police “controlled access to the military installations of the base,” and whether they were present when an ambulance arrived to transport Ghali from the Algerian plane. Lastly, he called for investigations into which security personnel were responsible for the security zone and their identification “by name and surname.” 

Urdiales, along with several other human rights activists, previously voiced concern over Spain’s failure to prosecute Ghali for charges of human rights violations and his presentation of a false identity while in Spain. The militia leader left Spain in June after spending several months at a hospital in northern Spain for COVID-19 treatments. After a judge refused to bring Ghali to trial for the charges, Spain allowed Ghali to leave on an Algerian plane, which quickly transported him to the Algerian capital.

It remains to be seen whether Spain will regain Morocco’s trust with the new government reshuffle, leading to the sacking of the former FM Arancha Gonzalez Laya.

Newly appointed Spanish FM Jose Manuel Albares has emphasized his determination to work towards restoring good relations between Morocco and Spain.

ABC reported that Albares expressed his willingness to work to resolve the crisis between Spain and Morocco on Monday at the headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The news outlet said that among the minister’s priorities is the need to “strengthen relations, especially with Morocco.”

During his statement, the Spanish FM avoided mentioning the source of the crisis between Morocco and Spain.

Spain appointed Albares last week on Saturday after announcing the sacking of Gonzalez Laya as part of a major cabinet reshuffle.

Spain stirred escalated tension in April after it allowed Polisario leader Brahim Ghali to enter its territory for hospitalization.

Ghali entered Spain with a military aircraft without undergoing customs procedure at the request of the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Ghali also used a fake passport and identity under the name of Mohammed Ben Battouch to enter Spain, as a result of several accusations, including rape, genocide, torture, and forced detention.

Spain and Algeria maintained his hospitalization in a Spanish hospital a secret. A few days upon his arrival, however, Morocco’s intelligence detected his presence in Spain.

Morocco commented on Spain’s collusion with Algeria, saying that it is against the spirit of the relationship and partnership between Rabat and Madrid.

The country also warned of a rupture of ties. Spain maintained that the decision to host Ghali was for humanitarian reasons.

Laya’s controversial remarks against Morocco escalated tensions between the two countries, leading to a frozen diplomatic tie since April.

Since the start of the crisis, Spanish and other European officials have warned that relations with Morocco are crucial and emphasized the need to secure partnership with Rabat.

ABC described Manuel as Pedro Sanchez’ “henchman, who must restore the relationship with Morocco.”

In addition to ABC, Radio Television Ceuta also highlighted the new FM’s determination to work to restore ties with Morocco.

On July 12, the news outlet put a video of Albares, documenting a press conference in which the Spanish FM described Morocco as a great friend.”

It remains to be seen whether the new FM will succeed in helping Spain to regain Morocco’s confidence after several months of “broken trust” between the two countries.

Failure often comes with a lot of overwhelming negative emotions that many of us don’t know how to cope with. Our society has succeeded in making everyone believe that high achievements are the key to happiness and failure is associated with shame and misfortune.

However, failure and setbacks are far from the end of the journey. In fact, failure is an opportunity for growth and learning and a chance to become the best version of yourself.

Failing a test, an exam, being rejected, or denied a job position or promotion can be discouraging, which is normal. We all have goals and dreams we want to achieve, and living through failure usually makes us focus more on our weaknesses,

Dwelling on these negative emotions will only increase your melancholy feelings which will prevent you from overcoming the situation and moving forward.

Not properly managing these emotions can also lead you to avoid experiencing another setback by missing many great opportunities that might come your way in the future.

Nonetheless, as human beings we can’t pursue success and expect the road to be easy, we are bound to fall many times before reaching high achievements. It is important to know that even the most successful people have gone through many failures and setbacks, which can be inspiring and reassuring.

These are ways and tips that can help you cope with the emotions of failure and move forward from the situation.

Embrace your emotions

The first and healthy step you have to take to cope with failure is to recognize and embrace your emotions during this situation.

It is important to acknowledge that living through setbacks is normal in life. The faster we realize this, the easier we accept our emotions and eventually move on from the situation and realize its significance in our lives.

Failure hurts, it makes you feel all these negative emotions such as stress, anxiety, distress, shame, anger, hopelessness, uncertainty, and depression. It can be very overwhelming and you might feel isolated not wanting to burden others with your negative emotions or risk being judged for your failure.

You may want to distract yourself and push these emotions away. However, it is best to accept and embrace these feelings and avoid bottling them up so that you don’t let them out at unexpected times in the future.

However, not dwelling on your emotions for too long is just as important as embracing them. Remember that just because you had a setback, does not mean you are unintelligent or incapable.

Take your setback as a learning opportunity

Instead of seeing failure as a horrible experience that shatters our confidence and destroys our motivation, you should take it as a learning opportunity and a new chance to develop yourself and your skills and be more prepared to achieve your goals.

Ask yourself important questions that will help you understand your setback better and learn from it, so you can be able to avoid making the same mistakes.

This way, you will start seeing your setback from a positive perspective and an important factor in your future success, you will get to learn and have more knowledge and experience through it.

Think about what you can do differently and how can you improve your methods to achieve better results.

Practice healthy coping mechanism

Going through a challenging situation such as failure, it is easy to try to cope with it by using unhealthy coping mechanisms and destructive behaviors that can lead to serious consequences either directly or in the long term.

Some of the unhealthy coping mechanisms you should avoid are overeating junk food, smoking, overdrinking, staying up late, criticizing yourself, becoming aggressive.

These unhealthy coping mechanisms can become bad habits that are hard to break from and can cause bigger issues in the future.

Instead, you can indulge in healthy practices that will help you cope with failure in a better way and allow you to embrace your feelings as well without having to bottle them up.

Some of the healthy coping mechanisms you can practice are, talking to someone you trust, so that you get another perspective and feel less alone in that situation, or indulging in your favorite hobby or activities that make you feel better.

Don’t seek validation from others

Some of the negative emotions that come with setbacks are shame and fear of being judged by others, which can destroy our self-esteem and make it more difficult to move on from the situation.

If you associate your success and failure with what others have to say about you, you will live a vicious circle of pleasing others and living by others’ terms.

Your life is yours to live just like other’s lives are their own. You can’t control what others say and how they think, but you can change how you view yourself, which is way more important.

Once you start living your life the way you want and not how others want, you will feel happier because you seek to please yourself instead of others. You will also cope with your failure better, without having to worry about others’ judgments.

Another important note to remember is that everyone goes through failure and setbacks, even the ones you are afraid will judge you have gone through similar situations. No one is perfect, but setbacks help us be the best version of ourselves.

Surround yourself with motivated people

Surrounding yourself with good people who are positive and motivated will help you keep going and never give up.  These people are also dreamers with big goals, people that are relentless and work hard.

Being around these types of people will allow you to adopt positive habits and attitudes that will help you cope with difficult situations such as failure.

Your positive friends and loved ones will also help you get back to your feet and inspire you to stay encouraged to follow your dreams.
