Hofstad group suspect deported

Zine Labidine Aourghe, a suspect in the Hofstad group that had been staying illegally in Holland, has been declared "unwanted" and deported.

He had been freed from jail in September since his probable sentence would have already been served by then.

Amnesty International says people with a "stigma" of terrorism should not be deported to North African countries, as these countries do not observe human rights. Many people were arrested after the Casablanca bombing, says an Amnesty International spokesman, and many of them were not related to terrorist activities. Zine is afraid he'll be in trouble in Morocco since "there's no justice there". His wife, with whom he has 2 kids, is also worried for his safety.
