Morocco justifies 2015 extradition
RABAT: Morocco confirmed Friday that in 2015 it arrested a Saudi official, wanted by Interpol, and extradited him to Riyadh, denying that this was a “disappearance”. Turki bin Bandar bin Mohamed bin Abderrahmane Al-Saud was arrested at Casablanca Airport on Nov 11, 2015 on his way to Paris on an “international warrant issued (the same day) by Riyadh for disrupting public order via the internet and financial crimes”, a Moroccan diplomatic source said. Bin Bandar, a former high-ranking Saudi police officer, was extradited to Saudi Arabia the next day “in compliance with legal provisions”, the same Moroccan diplomatic source said. His comments came after French newspaper Le Monde on Thursday published an article in which it described the deportation three years ago as an extradition of convenience.
