During the Last 20 days, more than 4,500 individuals were arrested in order to counter the rise of crime in one of Morocco’s main cities.
This was revealed by Noureddine Sennoussi, the new prefect of the city of Fes, during a closed meeting with civil society associations’ representatives, reports l’Economiste.
Mr Sennoussi declared that the police force of Fes’s strategy relies on close ties with the civil society and the permanent presence of mobile elements of the force (through motorcycles and cars) in the main axes of the city.
However, civil rights associations accuse him of arresting the intoxicated or drugged young persons instead of the real thugs.
