The Court of Appeal confirms the sentence of the “Jdidah pedophile” to 20 years in prison.

The criminal chamber of the Court of Appeal of the city of Jdidah confirmed the sentence of 20 years in prison against the “pedophile of Jdidah”. The court also decided to confirm the sentence against the president of a sports association accused of sexual harassment of children, while increasing the damages for the claimants to 80,000 dirhams instead of 50,000 dirhams.

Last August, the provincial judicial police department of the city of Jdidah opened an investigation under the supervision of the competent public prosecutor to determine the criminal acts attributed to a 57-year-old individual, suspected of being involved in a case of sexual assault on a child.

Security authorities had received a complaint from the family of a minor child attributing these acts to the suspect, who heads a private sports association, accused of sexually assaulting his nine-year-old son during a sports excursion to a beach on the outskirts of the city of Jdidah.
