Police in Marrakech arrested on Thursday a French national of Algerian descent, who was subject to an international arrest warrant from the French judicial police.
Rabat – The 34-year old was subject to an international arrest warrant for his alleged involvement in robbery, firearms use and prison escape.
According to a statement from the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN), French judicial police issued an arrest warrant in November after the man left France, escaping French law enforcement authorities.
The defendant faced judicial investigation under the supervision of the prosecutor office to determine the circumstances of the case, pending the procedural steps for his extradition.
