Casablanca — Morocco’s General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) will now require all members of the police force to have a biometric passport.
On December 6, Al Ahdath Al Maghribiya reported that the DGSN is now requiring all police members to have a passport. Abdellatif Hammouchi, who has been DGSN director since May 2015, made the decision after some members of the Moroccan police force were not able to accompany King Mohammed VI on his official visit to Madagascar last month.
In response, Hammouchi gave precise instructions to all members of the police force, requiring them to acquire a passport by December 8th. Government offices across the country in charge of issuing passports have, as a result, seen an influx of police member passport applications.
