The Spanish national is suspected of fraud, the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) said in a statement.
The suspect is also the subject of a red notice from Interpol for fraud. In addition to the two international notices against the suspect, Morocco’s judicial police also issued a national search notice against the suspect for using fraudulent checks.
Police put the suspect in custody, pending an expulsion procedure. The DGSN said that the national police informed the Spanish authorities of his arrest.
Morocco’s security strategy is based on cooperation in fighting cross-border crime. Spain and Morocco share regular partnerships in different fields, including the fight against drug trafficking, irregular migration, and terrorism.
Morocco assists several European partners as part of its membership of Interpol.
Interpol has an office in Rabat and Morocco has been a member of the international organization since June 17, 1957.
