Moroccan woman jailed 3 years

A Moroccan woman has been jailed for three years for violently abusing an 11-year-old maid. Outraged rights groups said they would appeal the sentence on grounds that it was too lenient.

The woman was also fined US $3,000 for her brutality against the little maid, Zineb Chetitezineboujda1, whose case attracted widespread attention in Morocco.

But several Moroccan rights groups say they would appeal on behalf of the country’s estimated 60 thousand to 80 thousand child labourers.

The chair of the Association, “Don’t Touch My Children”, Najia Adib, says the sentence does not regret the scale of the atrocities committed, because the little girl was locked up in a cellar.
