The search warrant came after the suspect’s link with a criminal gang involved in fraudulent access to the information system of a banking institution to transfer funds,” the statement revealed.

The Moroccan security service explained that investigations uncovered the suspect’s involvement in the organisation of irregular migration operations and exploitation of female would-be irregular migrants.
