Woman Arrested in Marrakech on Charges of Child Abduction and Exploitation for Begging

In a significant security development, Moroccan authorities have apprehended a 25-year-old woman in Marrakech on suspicion of her involvement in a serious case involving the abduction of a minor and exploiting him for begging.

The arrest took place on Sunday, July 7, 2024, following a coordinated effort between judicial police elements in Marrakech and their counterparts in Kenitra. The case began when a woman in Kenitra filed a report accusing her neighbor of kidnapping her three-year-old son.

Intensive investigations and searches led to the suspect being caught red-handed in Marrakech, where she was exploiting the abducted child for begging activities. The accused has been placed under preventive custody pending the completion of investigations, which are being conducted under the supervision of the competent public prosecutor’s office.

The ongoing investigations aim to uncover all the circumstances surrounding this serious case and to determine the motives behind this criminal act. This incident once again highlights the issue of child exploitation in begging, a matter of increasing concern in Moroccan society.

It’s worth noting that Moroccan authorities are taking strict measures against such practices and urge citizens to immediately report any suspicious cases to protect children from exploitation and abuse.
