On February 7, 2012, Walid Bahomane appeared before a court in the Moroccan capital Rabat. The 18-year-old is accused of “defaming Morocco's sacred values” by posting pictures and videos on Facebook mocking king Mohammed VI of Morocco.

On February 16, 2012, Bahomane was sentenced on charges of online piracy--rather than the more serious charges of lese majeste--to one year in prison and a fine of 10,000 dirhams.
