Trial of Accused in Murder of Two Scandinavian Tourists in Imlil Resumes

The Criminal Chamber in charge of terrorism cases at the annexe of Salé’s appeal court resumed on Thursday the hearing of the case of the murder of two Scandinavian tourists in the region of Imlil (El Haouz province), in which 24 individuals are prosecuted.

The suspects, including a man with Swiss and Spanish nationalities, are standing trial over the charges of “setting up a gang to prepare and commit terrorist act, deliberately putting the life of people in danger, possessing firearms and attempting to manufacture explosive devices in violation of the law as part of a collective project to undermine public order.”

On May 30, the court heard the four main suspects on the facts alleged against them in accordance with the minutes of the judicial police and the investigating judge, while their defense raised several formal objections.

As part of investigations carried out following the discovery of the dead bodies of two foreign tourists in the town of Imlil, the central Bureau for judicial investigations (BCIJ), under the directorate general for national territory surveillance announced that it had arrested several suspects, in collaboration with the Royal Gendarmerie and National Police.
