Interpol Wanted Saudi Prince Arrested at Casablanca Airport
A prince from Saudi Arabia was arrested by Moroccan authorities at Mohammed V Airport in Casablanca on Thursday and placed in custody at the prison of Salé, according to Moroccan daily Al Massae’s weekend edition.
The Saudi prince was about to board a Casablanca-Paris flight when border police discovered that his identity matched that of a man wanted by Interpol office in Saudi Arabia for whom an international arrest warrant had been issued.
According to sources cited by the daily, the Saudi prince whose identity has not been revealed to the press, was arrested by undercover police when waiting to get Morocco’s exit stamp on his passport.
The suspect and another Saudi national who was traveling with him were prevented from leaving Moroccan territory and asked to enter a separate room for investigation.
