The Casablanca administrative court authorized, on Tuesday, a Libyan national who was stranded for a week at the Casablanca international airport to enter the Moroccan territory.

The Libyan national arrived from Malta to take a new plane for Tunisia. However, the flight was cancelled after Morocco suspended sea and air travel to avoid the spread of coronavirus.

The judge's decision ordered the Moroccan authorities to allow the 39-year-old to stay in the country, for these exceptional reasons, after he underwent coronavirus tests.

His lawyer told EFE that the urgent order is addressed to the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and to the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN).

On March 15, Morocco announced the suspension of all international flights until further notice. Five days later, the country declared a state of health emergency to limit the spread of the virus.
