The police temporarily suspended the airport chief police inspector from duty.
Rabat – The General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) ordered that a chief police inspector working at Marrakech-Menara airport be temporarily suspended from duty on Thursday after he was caught stealing.
The Marrakech Judicial Police Prefectural Service opened a judicial inquiry to investigate charges that a British tourist brought against the inspector, according to a DGSN statement.
The tourist asserted that he handed in his passport to the police officer at the airport counter. He later noticed that Moroccan and British banknotes were missing from the document. After realizing the money was gone, the tourist retrieved the money “in three parts” from the police inspector.
The national security services viewed the surveillance camera footage, which backed up the tourist’s story.
The chief inspector will have to appear before the disciplinary board to determine how he will be disciplined.
