Funeral held for Moroccan rights activist Serfaty

CASABLANCA, Morocco (AFP) – Dozens of people attended the funeral of leading Moroccan rights activist Abraham Serfaty on Friday, including representatives of NGOs and members of the government.

 

The funeral took place at a Jewish cemetery in the western Moroccan city where Serfaty was born.

Serfaty died on Thursday at the age of 84, after a lifetime campaigning for democracy, first against French colonial rulers and then King Hassan II's absolute monarchy.

 

Government ministers, an advisor to King Mohammed VI, representatives of rights groups and members of the Jewish community attended the funeral, along with Serfaty's wife, according to an AFP reporter.
