Details of a criminal plan prepared from Morocco and targeting children on Facebook, unveiled

The General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) unveiled, on Wednesday, the details of a criminal plan, prepared from Morocco, related to a case of sexual exploitation of primary school pupils on Facebook.

A report, broadcast by Public Television, supported by testimonies from the suspects involved in this case, evokes the details of this systematic operation which dates back to last November when elements of the DGSN’s Central Service for the Fight against Cybercrime detected a serious criminal activity.

This activity aims to target children through the creation, on November 16, of groups on Facebook destined to children in the primary phase.

The investigations which was launched, led to the identification of 20 suspects aged 18 to 29 active within an international network, including 11 administrators, 7 members and 2 individuals from the Kingdom of Morocco.

After identifying and locating the individuals involved in this case, the services concerned proceeded to dismantle this network and close all the groups in a record time.

The technical investigations carried out under the supervision of the competent courts allowed the identification and arrest of the suspects through 14 provinces of the country, while locating two other individuals activating within this network from Morocco, using false identities to suggest that they were Algerian.

The DGSN has appealed to parents whose children have been victims of similar practices to go to police stations on the territory of the Republic to flodge a complaint or deliver testimonies.
