Morocco, France Mend Long Spat, Restore Legal Collaboration
The Associated Press
France and Morocco have announced that they have ended a long running spat by restoring judicial cooperation severed nearly a year earlier.
The restoration of judicial cooperation follows meetings between the justice ministers of the two countries Saturday,and allows them to cooperate on legal matters.
Morocco ended legal ties with its former colonial master in February 2014 after police attempted to arrest the visiting Moroccan intelligence chief, the target of a suit filed by activists accusing him of torture.
Morocco’s press says the mending of fences came with France’s desire for increased intelligence cooperation in the wake of January’s deadly attacks in Paris by Islamic radicals which left 20 dead.
