Rabat – A Moroccan woman is allegedly involved in a case of “espionage” in Spain. She is accused of leaking sensitive and confidential information on terrorism investigations to “foreign parties”.
The suspect who is a translator who worked with Spanish intelligence services will be facing trial at the National Court of Madrid, according to Spanish website Okdiario.
The Moroccan woman, whose name has not been publicly released, reportedly provided translation services to Spain’s judicial authorities from the Moroccan dialect Tarifit, spoken in northern Morocco.
According to the same source, the “espionage” suspect was caught stealing sensitive information stored in a computer she had access to, regarding phone conversations among terrorists back in August 17, 2012.
Police investigators discovered that the accused had erased approximately 17 documents full of evidence that could lead to active terrorist networks in the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla.
Security services have not denied nor confirmed that the suspect could have been working as a double agent for another country’s intelligence.
The final destination of the stolen documents remains unknown, as well as with whom she allegedly shared the confidential information according to the same source.
