Moroccans are unhappy by the royal pardon of a Spanish paedophile who was at the start of seving his 30-year sentence for the rape of 11 children in the north African kingdom.

The convicted paedophile is one of the 48 jailed Spaniards who has reportedly been pardoned by King Mohammed VI at the request of Spanish King Juan Carlos.

The news has provoked a frenzy of angry posts on the Moroccan social media sites which has resulted in anti-government groups calling for rallies in the Moroccan capital. On Twitter one woman wrote “The king’s pardon is a second rape for the victims.”

Hamid Krayri, a lawyer for families of the victims, allegedly named the paedophile as Daniel Fino Galvan and went onto say that he had been convicted 18 months ago by criminal courts in Kenitra near Rabat. The convictions were for raping and filming children aged betwen four and 15-.years-old.

Galvan’s laywer, Mohammed Benjeddo spoke saying that once freed, his client planned to leave for Spain. The palace, the Spanish embassy and the government
have all declined to confirm Galvan’s release.

Prisoners pardons from the king are usually left until special days such as Throne day – July 30 but this decision has appalled Moroccons.

“Is this Morocco’s way to reach the long-sought target of 10 million tourists a year?” asked blogger Nouhad Fathi in a sarcastic post on her Facebook wall
