Azeddine Slimani, Abdellah Bella, and Mohamed Tlemcani

Three Moroccan teachers, Azeddine Slimani, Abdellah Bella, and Mohamed Tlemcani, were arrested on June 28, 2010, for allegedly kidnapping and threatening a former member of the Islamic organi- zation Justice and Spirituality. Human Rights Watch and the Network for Education and Academic Rights have reported that the three men, along with four others taken into custody, claim to have been kept naked and without food in individual cells, and that the police have beaten and sexually abused them, and shocked them with electricity. Human Rights Watch has noted that these arrests appear to part of a wave of repression carried out against Justice and Spirituality, a large religious opposition group in Morocco whose legality is contested by the government.
