King Mohammed VI, Supreme Commander and Chief of General Staff of the Royal Armed Forces (FAR), on Monday, appointed Major General Mohamed Haramou commander of the Royal gendarmerie, in replacement of Lieutenant-General Hosni Benslimane.
During the audience, the Monarch decorated Hosni Benslimane with the Grand Cordon of Wissam Al Arsh.
King Mohammed VI also decorated with the same order Gen-eral Bouchaib Arroub, former FAR inspector general and com-mander of the southern zone, who had been replaced in the position few months ago by Lieutenant-General Abdelfatah Louarak.
The Monarch expressed thanks to the two senior army officers for the services rendered to the Nation, a statement released by the Royal Office said.
General Arroub and General Benslimane fulfilled their respec-tive careers, under the command of the late king Hassan II and of King Mohammed VI, with an elevated sense of devo-tion and loyalty to serve the highest interests of the Nation, and with selfless dedication in fulfilling their missions, the statement noted.
