RABAT, Morocco (AP) Morocco’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced it summoned the French ambassador to protest a case filed in France against the Moroccan intelligence chief for complicity with torture.
The statement carried by the state news agency Saturday said Morocco “categorically rejects” such baseless legal cases and said the “serious incident” threatens relations between the two countries.
According to the news agency, police came to the residence of Morocco’s ambassador in Paris asking about Abdellatif Hammouchi, the head of the intelligence service, who was in the city for a conference, after an anti-torture activist group filed the suit with a judge.
The French Foreign Ministry said Saturday it was investigating the “regrettable incident.”
