President of Wydad Club faces serious charges

Morocco – Sudan Events

The Casablanca Court in Morocco on Friday decided to place the president of Wydad Athletic Club, one of the largest football clubs in Africa, Saeed Naciri, in detention after investigations on several charges, including “drug trafficking”.
On Friday morning, the investigating judge interrogated Saeed Al-Nasiri (54 years old) and the rest of the defendants in this case, and “decided to prosecute him on several charges, including forgery of an official document, concluding agreements related to drug promotion, and using a forged check,” according to what was reported by Agence France-Presse.
Local media reported that the judge also charged him with “money laundering.”
The investigation into this case includes 25 defendants, 21 of whom are under arrest, including the head of the Eastern Region Council (northeast of the country), Abdel Nabi Baiwi (52 years old), the source added.
Naciri and Bayoui are leaders of the Authenticity and Modernity Party participating in the government coalition in Morocco.
Al-Nasiri will appear before the investigating judge for a detailed interrogation on January 25.
This case was opened based on accusations brought against Al-Nasseri by a convict in an international drug trafficking case, according to the source.
The matter concerns a “drug baron” nicknamed “Al-Mali” because he comes from Mali. He was arrested in Morocco in 2019 and sentenced to ten years in prison in a case of “international drug trafficking,” according to what Jeune Afrique magazine revealed in August.
The Moroccan Al-Ahdath newspaper said on Friday that the investigations conducted by the Public Prosecution after Al-Mali’s statements included about 80 people, including two police officers.
