Probe deepens into case of pedophilia in El Jadida, 14 children interviewed

Authorities have intensified efforts in the case El Jadida beach pedophile, as members of the judicial police from the security department in Sidi Moumen are probing the incident.

As per information obtained by MoroccoLatestNews, the judicial police, under the direction of the Public Prosecution, have interviewed 14 children who were with the head of a sports association seen in a video engaging in a homosexual act with a minor at El Jadida beach.

These children’s statements reveal that the detained accused, currently held at Sidi Moussa prison in El Jadida, engaged in unusual activities, including coercing children to perform sometimes nude dances within an apartment close to the Abdi stadium. This apartment was rented and used as a “camp.”

The parents of the children who accompanied the association’s president to El Jadida are also being questioned. Authorities are examining permissions for the trip, submitted documents, financial contributions from different families, and the level of approval granted. The families are reportedly uniting efforts to seek support from official bodies and organizations to aid the children, given the incident’s proximity to the upcoming school term.

Residing in the Anassi region where the accused association president operated, parents are in disbelief over the incident’s brazen occurrence on the beach. They speculate that similar activities might have transpired within the rented El Jadida apartment.

Human rights and anti-harassment associations are set to become involved as civil parties to back the children and their families, according to credible sources.

The Public Prosecutor of the King at the Court of Appeal in El Jadida transferred the accused into the custody of an investigating judge on Monday.

The judge ordered his pretrial detention on charges of human trafficking and indecent assault against a minor. Detailed interrogation sessions are slated to begin August 30.
