The families of seven members of the Islamist movement Al Adl wal Ihsan (Justice and Spirituality) announced on September 1 that they had filed a lawsuit against the police for "torturing" them while in custody. The Adlist activists, who were recently arrested in Fez, are suspected of having kidnapped and tortured a lawyer. But they claim they are innocent, arguing that there is a plot to conspire against them. According to them, their confession was obtained under torture. This is not the first time that the influential movement’s activists have appeared before the courts. The authorities accuse them of violence and intolerance, a charge they flatly deny. Victims or perpetrators?
