A statement from the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) said that the police arrested the suspect on October 22.
The French national was a subject to international arrest warrant for his involvement in an “intentional murder” he is believed to have commited in France on May 28.
The Frenchman had been living in Morocco illegally at the moment of his arrest, according to the DGSN statement.
Police put the suspect in custody for further investigation pending extradition procedure.
The police notified French police of the arrest.
Morocco’s security strategy is based on cooperation to fight against cross-border crimes. France and Morocco share regular partnership in different fields, including the fight against drug trafficking and terrorism.
This is not the first time that Morocco has assisted its international partners as part of its membership in the Interpol.
In April, the police in the Moroccan coastal city of Essaouira arrested another French national for links to an international drug trafficking ring.
He had been the subject of an international arrest warrant from French authorities since 2017. Last week, police also arrested a French national for practicing plastic surgeries illegally in Morocco.
