After authorities found the bodies of two Scandinavian women near Mount Toubkal in December 2018, a horrific footage allegedly showing one of the victims being decapitated went viral on social media.
Rabat – The Danish government is still b struggling to end the sharing of the video that allegedly show what some believe to be the killing of one of the Scandinavian tourists near Imlil, a village in the Atlas Mountains near Mount Toubkal in Morocco.
Authorities found the bodies of Maren Ueland from Norway and Louisa Vesterager Jespersen from Denmark on December 17.
According to Danish news outlet BT, the Danish public prosecutor Kirsten Dyrmann said that a large group of people in Denmark are sharing the video, urging them to refrain from sharing it.
According to the news outlet, the publish prosecutor has been tasked to investigate into the sharing of the video.
According to Dyrmann, the sharing of the video may be punishable.
The video purportedly showing the murder also caused uproar in Norway.
In December, Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg urged people to stop downloading and sharing the graphic video.
Solberg said that she hopes that people “will show support and compassion for the victims and their relatives by abstaining from spreading” the video.
She added that the video has been posted on her own Facebook page.
At least 22 suspects have been arrested in connection with the murders. Morocco has still not revealed the result of the investigations into the video.
Government Spokesperson Mustapha El Khalfi said in a press conference in December that investigations were still underway to determine whether the video was related to the crime.
