Thumbs up for Morocco

In the same line as Chile did a few days ago, Morocco is holding the hearings of 200 victims of institutional tortures during the rule of Hassan II. They are going to be aired live.

I wonder if any of these or these will ever have their opportunity to have the abuses they suffered recognized.

I have my doubts that it will be the full public airing that the situation deserves, but just today a trial started for one of the accused Abu Ghraib torturers, including some testimony by a couple of the victims (Google News: "Abu Ghraib trial", "Charles Graner").

It seems less likely that there will ever be a clear accounting for the secrets at Guantánamo.

We must remember that the trials against abusers in Abu Graib are being held by a military court and that implies that the process won't be as clear as a civil trial would be. I personally don't believe martial courts are the best places justice can be served as they don't respect some of the fundamental rights of both the suspects and victims but it's good to see that their acts won't remain impune.
