Police at the Mohammed V International Airport in Casablanca have arrested a 51-year-old Chinese woman, who was under an international arrest warrant filed by the French judicial police for kidnapping.
A statement from the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN), said that the police arrested the suspect on Monday.
The Moroccan police arrested the suspect upon her arrival from Abu Dhabi.
She was the subject of an Interpol red notice after being convicted in absentia by the French court for kidnapping her minor son, who she took out of France without the permission of her ex-husband.
Police put the suspect in custody for further investigation, pending the extradition procedure.
The arrest is part of the DGSN services to reinforce international cooperation mechanism in security.
Throughout the year, Moroccan police arrested a number of suspects under international arrest warrants. The latest operation took place in Marrakech on May 11, when DGSN members arrested a Danish national.
The 30-year old suspect was arrested for his involvement in a fraud.
In addition to its action against international wanted suspects, Morocco is also involved in several counter-terrorism projects in collaboration with the international community.
Moroccan law enforcement is also working with international bodies on operations including tracking suspects involved in undocumented migration networks, and the fight against illegal psychotropic drug traffickers.
