Morocco: Arrest of Daesh Sympathizer in Safi

Judicial police in Safi on Wednesday arrested a Daesh-sympathizer, allegedly involved in preparing a terrorist plan in an individual project to seriously undermine public order.

This operation was carried out based on detailed information provided by the Directorate General of Territorial Surveillance (DGST), said a statement released on Thursday by the Central Bureau of Judicial Investigations (BCIJ).

The investigation revealed that the suspect had pledged allegiance to the alleged emir of Daesh, said the statement, adding that he has effectively started to locate and identify targets of his criminal plan, mainly officials, using the operational modes of lone wolves.

Sweep operations conducted at the suspect’s home led to the seizure of a video containing his alleged allegiance to the Daesh organization and his intention to join the fighting camps of the said organization.

The defendant will be tried at the end of the investigation process conducted by the BCIJ under the supervision of the terrorism and extremism prosecutor, the statement said.
