LGBTQ activist from Morocco faces bigoted attacks and harassment after standing up for the rights of minorities



LGBTQ activist from Morocco faces bigoted attacks and harassment after standing up for the rights of minorities

An LGBTQ activist faces harassment and isolation in Morocco after a former police officer from Morocco shared a YouTube video attacking for bringing sexual assault claims to court and standing up for the rights of minorities in a conservative culture climate. 

Ouahiba Khourchech had come to the US as an asylum seeker, claiming to be a victim of injustice, persecuted by her former employers. Arguably Ms. Khourchech had abused the protection of the US government when her recent video attacking a vulnerable LGBTQ activist in Morocco brought him to the brink of suicide. Before we reveal further details regarding this incident, we would suggest you to visit this site to learn about all pride flags.

The video exposed “Adam”‘s real identity, endangering his life and subjecting him to false attacks on his credibility and harassment by extremists, resulting in a recently filed lawsuit by the LGBTQ activist against the ex-police officer. “Adam” has chosen to appeal to the US justice and to hold Khourchech accountable for the slanderous attacks, including claims that as a homosexual, he cannot be considered a truthful witness in reporting an attempted sexual assault.  

The claims against Ouahiba Khourchech are serious. The stake in this case far surpasses the individual situation of “Adam,” as Khourchech’s actions may impact the entire “LGBTQ” community in Morocco, as well as in Moroccan diaspora communities. The lawsuit will unmask the hypocrisy of someone who claimed to be a targeted victim of injustice, but then who went on to inflict the same type of injustice on others, knowing fully well that the consequences for people already isolated and stigmatized by social bigotry can be dire. For instance, the attacks on the credibility of homosexuals in sexual assault cases may have a chilling effect on reporting such crimes to the authorities in Morocco. In addition, despite her claims to an asylum status, Khourchech should not be free from scrutiny over her reputational attacks, violations to the right to privacy, resulting in endangerment of a vulnerable person’s life, and hateful rhetoric, which in the cultural context of the community, equates to incitement to violence.  

The fugitive from justice in her own right, Khourchech should not escape accountability for actions violating the law in the US, which to someone, who has a history of manipulating public opinion with some level of skill, may come as a surprise. Nor should it be forgotten that her attacks on “Adam” follow a lengthy investigation of his claims, resulting in his attacker’s trial and conviction for indecent assault with violence and sequestration. The image of Ouahiba Khourchech, which she had so carefully constructed and cultivated, is finally falling apart as “Adam” decided to take her to court in her new residence, where she sought refuge from justice for her prior misdeeds in Morocco.

When Can You Sue For Getting Cancer?



When Can You Sue For Getting Cancer?

Being diagnosed with cancer can be devastating and affect anyone at any age. Several factors, such as genetics and lifestyle, can cause it. However, cancer can also be caused by the negligence of others. In such an instance, you can sue the people responsible for causing your cancer and claim compensation for the diagnosis and any associated damages.

Determining when and who to sue for getting cancer can be a complex process. So, it’s a wise idea to hire a lawyer to get you through the process and get the compensation you deserve. The attorney can advise you on when, how, and whom to sue for getting cancer.

With that said, here’s when you can sue for getting cancer:

  1. Product Liability 

You can sue for getting cancer from a defective product. For example, in one hair product cancer lawsuit, a claim was made that a hair straightening product was causing uterine cancer in women. The defects in the hair product increase the risk of developing uterine cancer for whoever uses it. If you think you’re in a similar situation, you can sue the manufacturers if a certain product increases your risk of developing cancer.

However, proving your case and claiming compensation can be challenging. In such a case, you must prove the defective product caused your cancer to sue the manufacturer or retailer. You’ll have to request tests on the products to prove the defect and the relationship to cancer development. The product defect has to have caused your cancer diagnosis directly. One example is when the product has excessive amounts of lead. You’ll need to hire experts or resort to government authorities to investigate the product to prove this. This way, you have a piece of solid evidence to sue the product manufacturer.

  • Medical Negligence 

Medical negligence is one of the most common reasons to sue for getting cancer. You could sue for medical malpractice if the doctors, healthcare facility, hospital, or other medical professionals failed to offer the standard of care causing your cancer diagnosis. For example, if the doctor failed to order necessary tests or misdiagnosed your case resulting in cancer progression, you can sue for medical negligence.  

To successfully sue for medical negligence, you must prove that the medical practitioner’s actions directly caused your cancer diagnosis. You must also show that you suffered damage because of the negligent actions of the medical practitioner. By doing so, you can claim compensation for treatment of progressing cancer, lost wages if you cannot work, and pain and suffering.

  • Environmental Factors 

Exposure to environmental pollutants and toxins is a common risk factor for cancer. Prolonged exposure to asbestos at the workplace, radiation, and other chemicals can increase cancer risk. If you can prove your cancer was caused by exposure to a certain environmental toxin like asbestos, consider suing the company or entity responsible for the pollutants.

Suppose a company’s activities produce excessive radiation that affects the population in a specific area and results in cancer. In that case, you can sue that company for exposing you to toxins that caused the development of your cancer.

Like the previous points, you must prove your cancer was directly caused by a specific substance you were exposed to. You’ll also have to show that the exposure was from the negligence of the company or entity you’re suing. Another aspect you must consider is the entity’s knowledge of the potential risks of exposing people to the toxin or substance. Since you’ll also claim that the company or entity was negligent, expose their bad practices that contributed to the development of your cancer.

Additionally, working in a hazardous environment may expose you to substances or toxins that can increase your cancer risk. For instance, if you’re a construction worker with constant exposure to asbestos, you’ll be at risk of developing cancer. Working as a firefighter can also expose you to asbestos and other carcinogenic substances that cause cancer.  

You can sue your employer for getting cancer while working in a hazardous environment. To be successful, you must prove the cancer was caused directly by exposure to a specific chemical or substance at the workplace or in the line of duty. For example, getting cancer from asbestos exposure at a construction site.  

In such a suit, you’ll claim compensation for the medical expenses covering the diagnosis and treatment, lost wages, damages for the pain and suffering caused to you and your family, and other associated costs.  

Conclusion  Getting a cancer diagnosis because of someone else’s negligence can be traumatizing and devastating. However, you can get a little relief through compensation for the medical expenses and other related damages, such as pain and suffering. The process of suing for getting cancer can be complicated, and it’d be best to hire an experienced lawyer to handle the litigation process. An attorney can also advise on the available legal options available and the compensation to seek.
