Investigators from the Belgian police arrived Monday in Casablanca following the recent arrest of the alleged mastermind of the terrorist network, Abdelkader Belliraj, who has been accused of committing several crimes in Belgium. During the visit, which is part of the international police cooperation, the investigators would discuss with their Moroccan counterparts on how to dismantle the terrorist cell, the state-run Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) reported. Belliraj, 50, who holds the nationality of both countries, was arrested February 18 in Morocco with several other persons for possession of firearms. He was accused of leading a terrorist network and carrying out six murders between 1980 and 1990. Some 35 Moroccan Islamists or alleged accomplices of the terrorist network led by Belliraj were jailed last Friday in Salé, near Rabat, following accusations of murder, attempted murder, robbery, money laundering and forgery, among others.
