Rabat – The prosecution of a Moroccan network engaged in counterfeiting operations has begun on Wednesday 15 in the Criminal Court of Appeal in Casablanca.
Four members of a Moroccan network that specialized in money counterfeiting, drug dealing, and falsification of official stamps were prosecuted on Wednesday in Casablanca’s Criminal Court of Appeal.
The court had delayed the case until the defense was ready.
The network members are accused of possessing hard drugs and counterfeiting money and state stamps as well as official stamps of other countries.
According to Chapter 334 of the Moroccan Penal Code, individuals engaged in falsifying bank notes or coins that are officially used in Morocco or another country “shall be sentenced to life.”
The Judicial Police in Casablanca arrested one of the network’s members for cocaine possession a few months ago, finding that he was also carrying 200-dirham counterfeit bank notes. The three other members were arrested after the file was referred to the investigative judge.
