Interpol issued a red notice against the suspect in November 22,2018.
Interpol issued the notice against the 30-year old suspect on November 22, 2018, for alleged membership of a criminal network and serious assault, Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) reported.
The police arrested the suspect for his involvement in a fraud case on May 11.
A statement from the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) announced that the suspect is the subject of a red notice from interpol. The red notice was issued due to the suspect’s alleged involvement in a serious assault. The assault may have been a revenge attack instigated by criminal networks in Denmark.
Police have the suspect in custody, and have informed Danish authorities of his arrest pending the review of the extradition procedure.
The arrest made by DGSN is part of Morocco’s strategy to strengthen international cooperation mechanisms in the security sector.
Earlier this month, DGSN announced that security services in Marrakech had arrested 13 international suspects between May 16, 2018 and May 2019.
The Moroccan police also carried out 16 international arrest warrants during the same period.
During DGSN’s 63rd anniversary last week, police shared data showing that Moroccan law enforcement brought 61,278 people to justice during the same period, including 13,484 individuals involved in cases violent crime and 9,188 relating to criminal damage.
The Moroccan police have carried out several operations, similar to the case of the Danish national, to arrest suspects under international search warrants.
In addition to its strategy against international wanted suspects, Morocco is also involved in several counter-terrorism projects in collaboration with international governments.
The Moroccan police force are also working with international bodies on operations including tracking suspects involved in undocumented migration networks, and the fight against illegal psychotropic drugs traffickers.
