Morocco is an absolute monarchy with a very poor human rights records. Under the rule of king Hassan II, hundreds of people were "disappeared", imprisoned for their political beliefs or had to seek refuge abroad. While his successor has freed some political prisoners, others remain in jail. Torture is frequently used. The government has acknowledged that some of the disappeared are dead, but the fate of many remains unknown. Impunity reigns throughout the country, and those responsible for the disappearances have never been punished.

Morocco has been occupying Western Sahara since the 1970's where it has oppressed those seeking independence. Many Western Saharans have been disappeared and imprisoned.
