Fez- A Moroccan religious extremists group close to “‘the Movement for Unity and Jihad” reportedly made ‘death threats’ against the Moroccan Minister of Justice and Liberties, Mustapha Ramid.
According to the Moroccan Arabic daily newspaper Assabah, the religious movement called on the minister “to repent if he wants to live” and cancel the sentences, announced by the courts of the kingdom, against members of the dismantled terrorist cells in Morocco.
The same source said that the Moroccan radical movement would also release a list of Moroccan public figures that “will face a death threat”, including some leaders of the Salafi movement who are against the Moroccan movement for Unity and Jihad, such as Omar Haddouchi.
The Moroccan daily said that the group has pledged allegiance to the Iraqi self-proclaimed Khalifa Abou Bakr Al Baghdadi, head of the ISIS.
According to the Moroccan daily Akhbar Alyouam (in its issue 1443), the minister is under strict security surveillance, following the death threats announced by the “Unity and Jihad group.”
Unlike other ministers, Mustapha Ramid refused, in a phone call to the daily, to unveil the place where he will spend his summer vacation for this year, for “security measures”, he said.
The Moroccan police department, as reported by the Maghreb Agency Press (MAP), said that Morocco has recently dismantled a terrorist cell that allegedly worked, in coordination with other terrorist organizations affiliated with Al Qaeda, to feed Syria and other melting points with combatants.
