Moroccan lawmakers denounce European Parliament criticism

RABAT, Morocco (AP) — The Moroccan Parliament decided Monday to reconsider its ties with the European Parliament and subject them to a comprehensive evaluation after the EU legislature criticized the state of press freedoms in Morocco.

The decision followed an extraordinary joint plenary session of Morocco’s two houses of Parliament in Rabat on Monday that was convened to address the European Parliament’s resolution from last week.
