Imams head to Morocco for ‘training’

An estimated 40 Moroccan imams who work at mosques in the Netherlands went back to Rabat for ‘training’ last Friday, the Volkskrant reports on Wednesday.

The paper says the imams made the trip at the cost of the Moroccan government and without consulting mosque officials.
‘This is an undesirable situation,’ a spokesman for the Dutch Moroccan alliance SMN told the paper.
MPs have asked for an explanation about the trip ahead of Thursday afternoon’s debate on alleged spying in the Netherlands by Moroccan nationals.
