Casablanca: Two Individuals Arrested for Identity Theft and Dissemination of Violent Digital Content (Police)

Rabat – National security officials in Casablanca on Sunday arrested two individuals, aged 28 and 36, on suspicion of usurping functions governed by the law and of having filmed and broadcast violent digital content likely to undermine citizens’ sense of security.

A statement by the national police (DGSN) indicated that the Casablanca police prefecture reacted quickly and seriously to a video shared by users of instant messaging applications showing two individuals posing as elements of the police intercepting a road user and assaulting him after handcuffing him.

Searches and investigations led to the identification and apprehension of two of the suspects, the same source said, adding that a search of the house of one of them resulted in the seizure of a fake police armband, a digital camera, handcuffs, two guns, a plastic walkie-talkie and two motorcycles.

 The two individuals have been placed in police custody to complete the inquiry conducted under the supervision of the competent public prosecutor’s office to elucidate all the circumstances of this case, while investigations are under way to arrest all the individuals involved in these criminal acts, the DGSN concluded.
