Several victims in the "Hamza mon bb" case have accused Ayach, who lives in the UAE, of direct involvement.
Rabat – Moroccan police have issued an international arrest warrant against Moroccan designer Aicha Ayach for her alleged involvement in the “Hamza mon bb” case.
Several victims have accused Ayach of being directly involved in the case, along with Moroccan singer Dounia Batma and her sister Ibtissam who are both currently on bail.
Moroccan French-speaking news outlet Le360 reported that police are searching for Ayach’s aide, whose identity has not yet been revealed.
Ayach lives in the UAE.
If the news about the arrest warrant against Ayach is valid, the UAE is expected to repatriate the designer to Morocco under an agreement signed between the two countries in 2006 on the extradition of criminals.
Police have arrested six suspects involved in the case of Hamza mon bb, including a policeman. Police also summoned Dounia and her sister for their alleged involvement in the affair.
The Batma sisters are currently out of jail on bail but they are not allowed to leave the country pending the end of investigation.
The Hamza mon bb case refers to social media accounts active online since 2016. The accounts share indecent content about celebrities and public figures for blackmail.
