Maghrebi Objection in Lleida, against the acquittal of three accused murderers

The cultural association _Atlas’ which represents North African immigrants in the province of Lleda, has requested to protest the government for 13 days. The protect stems from anger over the acquittal of three men who were on trial over the gruesome killing of Oulhadi Hamid, a 26 year old Moroccan citizen whose body was found in a field in January of 2005. Relatives and friends of Hamid are dissatisfied with the acquittal and are preparing to appeal the ruling, citing the necessity for punishment, and a discriminatory court decision.
