A Moroccan YouTuber was sentenced Thursday to four years in prison for “insulting the king” in a video broadcast on social networks, his lawyer said.

The YouTuber Mohamed Sekkaki, known as “Moul Kaskita“, was sentenced by a court in the western city of Settat to four years in prison, his lawyer Mohamed Ziane told AFP

Sekkaki, whose videos usually exceed 100,000 views, was arrested in early December after posting a video in which he insulted Moroccans as “donkeys” and criticized King Mohammed VI, whose is considered “inviolable” under the constitution.

Ziani said his client would appeal the verdict.
