Members of the national security force arrested, on August 29 in Rabat, a sub-Saharan man living illegally in Morocco, for his alleged involvement in a case of voluntary manslaughter followed by theft committed against a sub-Saharan woman.
According to a communiqué by the General Directorate for National Security (DGSN), members of the prefectural service of Rabat’s judicial police arrested, based on precise information provided by the services of the General Directorate for Territorial Surveillance (DGST), an illegal sub-Saharan migrant in Morocco, for his alleged involvement in voluntary manslaughter followed by theft committed against a sub-Saharan woman.
The same source added that on August 25, the Dakhla judicial police began investigation procedures on the body of a foreign national living illegally in Morocco, discovered in a rented house in al Ghofran district, and bearing traces of physical aggression using a blunt object, noting that the investigations carried out resulted in the identification and arrest of the suspect in Rabat.
The communiqué also pointed out that initial investigations suggest that the crime was the result of a dispute over the cost of renting a room in the victim’s home, which escalated into voluntary manslaughter, followed by the theft of the victim’s telephone and a sum of money.
The suspect was taken into custody for investigation by the Dakhla regional judicial police department, under the supervision of the competent public prosecutor’s office, to unveil the details of this case.
