Moroccans detained in Myanmar / The Crown Prosecutor at the Casablanca Court of Appeal orders a judicial investigation

The Public Prosecutor at the Casablanca Court of Appeal has ordered the opening of a judicial investigation, entrusted to the National Criminal Police Squad, into the abduction of Moroccan nationals by criminal gangs operating in Myanmar in the border areas with Thailand.

A number of victims and relatives of the victims, especially those who filed complaints, were interviewed, the prosecutor’s office said in a statement on Wednesday.

Preliminary investigations revealed that criminal networks specialised in human trafficking were operating in Myanmar’s border areas, luring their victims with job contracts with international e-commerce companies in exchange for attractive salaries.

However, it turned out that this approach was only a way to defraud, lure and exploit them in order to detain them and force them to work in harsh conditions.

According to the preliminary information available and the data circulated by some social networks, the Public Prosecution calls for caution, caution and vigilance in the face of recruitment attempts that are still ongoing via the Internet and through some intermediaries in Morocco and abroad, and confirms that it is following the investigations conducted by the competent services of the Judicial Police to shed light on these events, arrest all those suspected of involvement in these acts, and consider the legal measures required in light of these events.
