The El Jadida Court of Appeal sentenced the president of the Casablanca Sports Association, who was accused of sexually exploiting children and went on to being known as “the El Jadida Pedophile,” to 20 years in prison.

The accused, who had detained in the local “Sidi Moussa”prison in El Jadida, denied charges against him during the trial session, claiming that he was gay, which some considered an attempt to evade his crime.

The pedophilia case surrounding a summer camp in Morocco shocked the public this summer, after the charged pedophile was filmed harassing a child on a beach, sparking national outrage.

According to Hespress source, the judicial police has questioned 14 children who accompanied the president of the sports association.

Statements made by these children indicated that the accused, detained in Sidi Moussa prison in El Jadida, was accustom to “abnormal practices,” including forcing children to dance sometimes naked inside an apartment located not far from the Abdi stadium, the location for the camp summer camp at the heart of the case.

A group of parents to children who accompanied the president of the association to the city of El Jadida were also questioned, providing details to authorities on the documents that were submitted for registering in the camp and the costs, which differed from one family to the other.

Sources say authorities additionally investigated the accused’s liability to hold the camp, and wether the activity was conducted in respect to bureaucratic legal frameworks in place.

Sources from the families of the children say parents are coordinating with each other in order to write to various official agencies and civil bodies, to provide psychological and moral support to the children, especially since the incident broke out only a few days away before the start of the school year.

Parents say they are surprised that the pedophile was confortable assaulting these minors in public, and in plain sight, as they fear this reveals a sense of confort that only an accustom aggressor would experience.
