The Moroccan dictatorship regime also deceives the artists
Abdellatif Zera´di is a Moroccan political refugee in France. He paints and draws the political caricatures and paintings and his exhibitions take place at the various galleries in France. After studying at the National School of Fine Arts of Tetouan in Morocco in 1980, he joined the French town of Dijon School of Fine Arts in 1988. After his studies he thought he could build his life in his native Morocco. But the circumstances in life led him to emigrate to France again. Then to Luxembourg, looking for work.
After the death of the dictator Hassan II, the artist believed for a moment that he could finally enjoy the beautiful sun of his native Morocco, so he returned in 2004 to live there with his children. He invested all his savings in a house that he built in the Moroccan city of Sale. Unfortunately, he suffered a real persecution: looting of his property, aggression, threats, imprisonment, etc. A real descent into hell that brought him back to exile, with nothing, as at the beginning.
After 15 years of endless legal proceedings, he appealed to King Mohamed 6 to demand justice. Because he is legally the only person responsible for the justice in Morocco as the President of the High Council of Justice.
Hence the artist receives a response to his complaint from the ruler Ali El Himma (or Mohamed 7 as the Moroccans call him), the adviser of the dictator M6. Then from the minister Moustapha Ramid and Hicham Naciri (palace lawyer) to contribute to solving this problem as soon as possible. However, it was only a staging to deceive the artist and have him sign a false statement that would have made him wear the hat! It is an event that seems to be a movie.
Recently he does not give in to the threats that he is receiving a mafia from various members of the organized dictatorship in Morocco. He continues his political art in the hope that the Moroccans will wake up to start a revolution against the dictator M6 and his Mafia regime.
