A Moroccan court has sentenced independent journalist Omar Radi to six years in prison. He was arrested last year on what press freedom advocates call “retaliatory charges.” For years Radi has been targeted by Moroccan authorities for his reporting on corruption and human rights. Last year, Amnesty International revealed Moroccan authorities had hacked his phone using Pegasus spyware from the Israeli company NSO Group. We will have more on Pegasus and Omar Radi later in the show.
