Extraterritoriality & Extradition


Active extraterritoriality is provided for all SEC-related offences under the Moroccan Penal Code committed by Moroccan citizens abroad as long as the double criminality requirement is fulfilled and only if the prosecution or judgement took place abroad, under Section 752 of the Code of Criminal Procedure. Passive extraterritoriality is not provided for.

SEC-related offences are extraditable if double criminality is fulfilled and the offences are punished by the law of the requesting State with at least two years of imprisonment under Section 4 of the Law on Extradition of Foreigners. Moroccan citizens cannot be extradited under Section 5 of the same law. Double criminality is required extradition (Section 4 of the Law on Extradition of Foreigners).
