Rabat – Morocco has decided on Saturday to “immediately recall for consultation,” its Ambassador in The Hague following the actions of “notorious trafficker of Moroccan origin residing in the Netherlands, who is the subject of two international arrest warrants issued by the Moroccan courts.”In a statement released on Saturday, Morocco’s ministry of foreign affairs said that “during the last two days, contacts had taken place between the Moroccan and Dutch authorities, at the level of Heads of Government and Foreign Ministers.”“These contacts dealt with the actions of a notorious trafficker of Moroccan origin residing in the Netherlands, who is the subject of two international arrest warrants issued by the Moroccan courts, for criminal association since 2010, and International drug trafficking since 2015,” added the communique. In this communique, the ministry has clearly alluded to Said Chaou, former Moroccan MP subject of the two international arrest warrants mentioned above.In June 2015, Said Chaou was arrested in Roosendaal in a joint operation between Dutch, French and Spanish security forces.At the time, Dutch news website Omro Brabant reported that during the search of his house, police found EUR 140,000 in cash, a cash counting machine and water taps made out of gold.But due to the lack of evidence, the Dutch court ultimately granted him freedom under judicial supervision in December 2015.Chaou is also linked to a Rifian separatist movement based in Roosendaal, Netherlands called the “18 September Movement for the Independence of Rif.”  He is believed to be the sponsor of this organization.While waiting for Netherlands’ reaction, Morocco “reserves the right to act accordingly to the consequences and implications that will follow on the level of bilateral relations, and to take the necessary political and diplomatic measures.”“Morocco, which has faithfully cooperated with the EU and the Netherlands in the fight against drug trafficking, cannot tolerate the fact that a well-known trafficker is still cut and run from the justice system,” stressed  the communique.“It was made clear to the Dutch authorities that it is imperative that concrete and urgent measures be taken against this trafficker and mercenary of the agitation,” added the same source.
