The 25-year old suspect allegedly suffers mental disorder, believing he has demons in his head.
Rabat – The 25-year old Spanish-Swiss suspect arrested in Morocco in December 2018 in connection to the double murder of two Scandinavian women, Kevin Zoller Guervos, will appear before the investigating judge on Monday.
The suspect’s lawyer, Saad Sahly, told AFP on Friday that Monday’s hearing will be more “detailed” than the preliminary hearing.
The hearing will “last for a long time, with more detailed questions.”
Morocco’s Central Bureau of Judicial Investigation (BCIJ) arrested Guervos on December 28, in addition to at least 21 other suspects.
Gema, the suspect’s mother, said that all allegations against her son are a “lie.”
The head of BCIJ, Abdelhak Khiame, said that Guervos was not directly involved in the murder, but he knew the primary suspects.
The dual national is believed to have trained some of the other arrested suspects to shoot, according to BCIJ.
The suspect was also planning to undermine Morocco’s stability by targeting security services and tourists when he was radicalized.
Authorities found the decapitated bodies of Danish tourist Louisa Vesterager Jespersen and Norwegian tourist Maren Ueland near Imlil in the Atlas Mountains on December 17.
