The ministry said in a statement that the accident took place on Thursday, August 30, and claimed the lives of Abdelghani Belkhou and his wife Sanaa Mohcine. The two Moroccan nationals had been living in the Netherlands.
The operation will be conducted in coordination with the Moroccan consulate general in Bilbao, northern Spain.
The couple’s two children, aged 5 and 1, survived the crash, as well as a 23-year-old relative.
The statement added that the ministry will transfer the bodies to Fez once the legal and administrative procedures are completed in Spain.
The ministry has also contacted the families of the deceased in Morocco and the Netherlands to provide them with support and to help them with the procedures related to the children’s custody.
