Moroccan police have led a crackdown on an illegal workshop manufacturing and selling toxic paramedical products in Oujda in northeast Morocco.
Rabat – Oujda’s Prefectural Police Department arrested the manager of a secret workshop on Saturday who had a criminal record in making paramedical drugs illegally.
The man owned two workshops that supply dietary supplements and other drugs with chemical components unfit for consumption, reported the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN).
The police confiscated 7.5 tons of raw material and already manufactured paramedical products in addition to lab equipment.
DGSN noted that the police also found dates and honey which the suspect mixed with chemicals to make the paramedical products.
The suspect is currently in custody while the police sent samples of the products to medical experts for examination.
