Rabat – An Englishman subject to an international search warrant by the International Police Organization (Interpol) for digital fraud was arrested in Tangier on Wednesday, the Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) reported.
The 49-year-old was the subject of an Interpol red notice, a request to locate and provisionally arrest individuals ahead of their extradition.
The General Directorate of National Security (DGSN), Morocco’s national security agency, said that his arrest is in line with the efforts made Moroccan security services to strengthen bilateral and multilateral cooperation to fight transnational crime.
DGSN added that competent Moroccan judiciary authorities will decide on the extradition procedures, noting that coordination in this regard is under way between Morocco, Interpol headquarters, and its bureau in Washington.
According to the security agency, Interpol distributed a red notice to its member states against the man in question on July 17. An international arrest warrant has also been issued against him by United States judiciary authorities for digital fraud.
