Moroccan radio station punished for antisemitic remarks

Morocco’s state audio-visual authority (Haca) has sanctioned the Radio Aswat station for broadcasting antisemitic comments.

In a programme broadcast on December 10, 2015, a presenter guided an interviewee into agreeing with a comment that Jews “hate Islam since the era of the Prophet”.

Haca handed out an official warning to Radio Aswat for what it termed non-respect of other religions and incitement to racial hatred.
