As a result, Abdelilah Benkirane wrote to High Audiovisual Communication Authority (HACA). He demanded to “take legal measures against those responsible”. Prime Minister said in his statement:

2M failed to intervene and stop the broadcast of the disgraceful scenes
The performance’s “sexual overtones” were indecent and provocative to the religious and moral values of Moroccan society

However, HACA thinks that the demand of Prime Minister “was inadmissible in form, because it does not fall within the scope.” 

Before, Lopez performed in Morocco without troubles. However, her previous shows were not aired.

TMZ said that educational group is suing famous singer for assaulting religious women and their respect.

Singer’s sentence can last for about 2 years.
