The government expressed its satisfaction with the release of student Ibrahim Saadoun through the mediation of the Saudi Arabian authorities.
Mustafa Paytas, Delegate Minister for Parliamentary Relations and a government spokesman, said the government had repeatedly expressed a desire to release him.
He stressed that the liberation was achieved thanks to the active diplomacy led by King Mohammed VI, which gave results that delighted all Moroccans.
Moroccan student Ibrahim Saadoun, who was sentenced to death by separatist Donetsk authorities in Ukraine, arrived in Morocco a few days ago after his release with the mediation of Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced the success of an initiative by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to release 10 prisoners from Morocco, the US, the UK, Sweden and Croatia.
