A Moroccan appeals court has sentenced a Frenchman to four years in prison after he was convicted of financially supporting a “terrorist” cell, a case that has alarmed rights groups.
Thomas Gallay, a 36-year-old engineer, was detained in February 2016 in the resort of Essaouira on Morocco’s Atlantic Coast.

He was initially given six years in jail but the sentence was reduced on appeal by a court in Sale near Rabat.
International rights groups including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch in November voiced concern about the case and what they called “convictions based on tainted ‘confessions’,” in Morocco.
