Estimated read time: 1'

As the month of Ramadan approaches, the representative of the Spanish Islamic Commission in Melilla, Mohamed Uariachi, has asked the city's president to ease the curfew, currently set at 10 p.m. 

In a letter addressed to Eduardo de Castro, he urged the authorities in the city to extend the curfew by one hour for Muslim inhabitants to attend Taraweeh prayers.  

An alliance formed by three parties governs in Melilla including the Coalition for Melilla led by Mustapha Aberchan, a formation which mainly represents the Muslims of the city. 

The local government is expected to respond to the request of the local branch of the Islamic Commission of Spain. Pedro Sanchez's central executive had already granted regional authorities the right to decree measures to deal with the covid-19 pandemic.

This question of the curfew in Ramadan and its impact on the opening of mosques after breaking the fast has not yet been decided in Morocco.
