It is turning into a noisy holiday in Courchevel 1850 for the King of Morocco, Mohammed VI. Journalists belonging to Reporters without Borders (RSF) staged a protest on the front des neiges in the luxury resort.
Activists from the international press freedom organisation distributed “Hello” style pamphlets featuring a picture of the king with the headline “Watch out for this man, he is thin-skinned”. The group is protesting about the three year prison sentence given to Ali Lmrabet who published a satirical cartoon of the king. Holiday makers seemed very interested in the vocal protest.
After the visit of Roman Abramovich in the autumn, Courchevel is rapidly turning into the resort of undesirable aliens, a long way from the vision of the founding fathers. RSF promised to harry the King around the resort to ruin his holidays
