Basri Is Dead

The formal interior minister of Morocco, Driss Basri, died in Paris this past weekend.
Driss Basri was known for his enormous power in Makhzen. He had so much control over local governors, business, and a great part of the Moroccan economy. In short, he was a legendary figure.
When Mohammed VI became the official king of Morocco, Driss Basri got fired. It was very obvious that the king did not share the same admiration for Basri as his dad used to.
Driss Basri, the man of many mysteries and scandals is dead now. He will surely serve as a good example for those who take advantange of the their high political status in the country to allow themselves to do about anything to serve their personal agendas.
Nevertheless, may his soul rest in peace.

Sakhafa--Morocco Jails Irish Paedophile

Morocco jails Irish paedophile
Published:Aug 10, 2007

RABAT - A 67-year-old Irish national living in Morocco has been sentenced to a year in prison for the sexual abuse of two boys under 16, an anti-child abuse organisation said yesterday.
A fine of 10,000 dirhams (900 euros, 1,200 dollars) was also given to the defendant.
The Don’t Touch My Child organisation called the August 2 sentence handed out in Agadir in the south of the country "too light".

It's a good thing the old Irish was thrown to jail yak? but for one year only? Come on dear Moroccan government, the psycho abused TWO minors and he gets to be sentenced for ONE YEAR and pay a fine of $1200.00 ONLY?

WHY? Because Moroccan Kids are cheap sheeps ?

It's a journey I am taking on my own this time. Far away from people that I love and far away from the country where I was born and raised. Vagabondeuse by choice this time. Vagabondeuse in my thoughts and lifestyle and even in my ups and downs.

the journey seemed so long and tiring but has not been bad at all: friendships, unexpected kindness from some people, and perhaps the most precious thing of all, is the discovery of inner strength and love.

Vagabondeuse jusqu'a je mets les pieds sur terre encore une autre fois.
