Casablanca- Did the“Tcharmil”phenomenon win the war? Police Commissioners in Fez, Tetuan and Casablanca have allegedly been sanctioned by the National Security General Directorate (DGSN) because of rising levels of insecurity in their cities.
In Casablanca, the Police Commissioner was allegedly dismissed by the DGSN because of a professional blunder he committed during the King’s recent visit to the economic city, according to news website Yabiladi.
The feelings of insecurity and anxiety that permeated Fez, Tetuan and Casablanca, stirred particularly by the emergent “Tcharmil”phenomenon, have mobilized all security services across the three cities. Yet, things seem beyond control for the police.
The residents of Fez, which has become another hotbed of crime and wrongdoings, had organized a number of demonstrations against insecurity in their city, which has caused the city’s police commissioner to be allegedly dismissed.
Yet, the DGSN justified the replacement of the three police commissioners saying they reached retirement age, according to the same source. “Why then were they directed to the DGSN rather than their homes?”asks Yabiladi.
Fez and Tetuan are not the only cities that will witness the appointment of new police commissioners. The economic capital’s Police Commissioner also seemingly underwent a sort similar to his counterparts in Fez and Tetuan due to an alleged professional blunder he committed during the King’s recent visit to the city, according to the same source.
Meanwhile, the Casablanca police continue their raids in search for representatives of the notorious “Tcharmil” phenomenon. Thirty suspects have already been arrested over the past four days.
