Morocco jails gay Frenchman
Wednesday 09 December 1992
RABAT (Reuter) - A French homosexual, Jean-Marc Smadja, 52, was jailed for three years for inciting young boys to debauchery in the south Moroccan city of Marrakesh, the official news agency, MAP, reported yesterday.
He was sentenced by a Marrakesh court on Monday at the end of a trial in which six boys aged between 11 and 15 gave evidence about orgies staged by the accused in a villa. Two Moroccan accomplices, Hicham Kahlous and Khalid Bouehi, were jailed for two years each.
Smadja denied the charges and blamed them on a friend, Jean Pierre Roffi, who rented the villa, MAP said. Mr Roffi is on the run.
