Security services arrested Monday evening in the city of Salé 113 adults and nine minors after refusing to comply with health emergency measures recommended by public authorities to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19).

They were arrested on the public road without having exceptional movement permits, National Police (DGSN) said in a statement, adding that several of them were arrested late at night without having legal justification, despite the awareness-raising campaigns undertaken by public authorities to reinforce precautionary measures against the spread of the pandemic.

The adults arrested were placed on custody, while minors were held under control, after having taken all the measures to ensure isolation during the transfer as well as during the investigation undertaken under the supervision of the competent public prosecutor's office, the source added.

These intense security operations, which took place in the districts of Salé Ville, Sala El Jadida, Laayaada, Bettana and Tabriquet, are part of the implementation of the health emergency measures taken to protect the security and health of all citizens to stem the spread of coronavirus.
