Highlights of Moroccan editorials (June 19, 2013).

Rabat - Moroccan editorialists comment this Wednesday June 19, 2013 on corruption and the visit to Morocco of the UN special rapporteur on human trafficking

In an editorial titled "the fatality of corruption", +Le Soir Echos+ notes that corrupting is riddling the entire society, taking various insidious forms such as tipping, or voluntary donation.

The worst thing is when corruption is seen as necessary and, hence, impossible to fight, by citizens themselves, the daily writes stressing that the idea proposed by the Central organization of corruption prevention, to draw a nationwide program of education to probity is a good track to explore.

It will be possible to abolish or drastically reduce corruption in one generation or two but we need the adequate tools and vision as well as awareness that corruption is not a fatality and that an equality-based system will be more advantageous.

By targeting kids, the idea of breaking with a reflex that is so costly for the community is pertinent and should be supported by all the citizens, most of whom are parents, the editorialist argues.

+Attajdid+ comments on the current visit of the UN special rapporteur on human trafficking, Joy Ngozi Ezeilo, to evaluate efforts and good practices in Morocco.

For the editorialist, the multiplication of UN officials' visits to Morocco shows the pertinence of Morocco's choice to honor its international commitments, and interact positively with the UN system human rights mechanisms.

The editorialist argues that Morocco's painstaking efforts to fight human trafficking will not bear fruits without interaction with the UN system, recalling that a study conducted by the national human rights council had concluded that controlling this phenomenon requires the protection of most vulnerable categories, particularly women and house workers.

Interacting with the UN system is very useful as it helps Morocco apply some legal commitments and measures that will contribute to coordinate efforts on the local and international levels, it notes before calling for promoting awareness on the importance of religious, pedagogical and cultural approaches to eradicate the plague and of involving all the society components (religious scholars, intellectuals and the media) in this endeavour instead of restricting action to the security approach.
