Rabat — All data confirm that the security situation in Morocco is very stable and largely under control, said, Tuesday, Interior minister, Abdelouafi Laftit.
Responding to a question on the security situation in Morocco raised by several parliamentary groups, Laftit said the crime rate that undermines the sense of safety has declined significantly over the past four years.
He noted that this rate in Morocco, in its various forms, is one of the lowest in the world (not exceeding 21 cases per 1,000 citizens annually). A rate that has globally stabilized since 2015, he added.
