First death since the recruitment of candidates wishing to perform military service. A taxable person died Friday at the Moulay Ismail military hospital in Meknes, following complications of his health, says one with the Army. According to his mother's statements, the deceased was insulin-dependent diabetic for six years and voluntarily stopped his treatment to perform his military service. He reportedly hid his illness from the medical board, saying he was not suffering from any illness and was not taking any medicine, he added.
The usual support given to the families of the regulars in such circumstances has been granted to the family of the deceased in terms of rights and support, says the Army.
