Moroccan authorities arrested Iraqi national suspected of financing terror in Iraq and Syria
The National Brigade of Judicial Police (BNPJ) arrested an Iraqi national residing in Morocco on Wednesday for alleged involvement in financing terrorists in the Syria and Iraq conflict zones.
Morocco’s security services arrested the suspect, identified as A.M., in Casablanca.
The suspect allegedly used couriers to send large sums of money from Morocco to jihadists.
In January, Moroccan security services arrested a French-Algerian national wanted by France for financing terrorism.
The French judicial police had put out an international arrest warrant for the dual national on April 22, 2016.
The BNPJ carried out the arrest of the Iraqi in cooperation with Morocco’s General Directorate for Territorial Surveillance (DGST). Police put the Iraqi suspect in custody while the investigation is underway.
