Union Cabinet approves India-Morocco agreement on legal assistance in criminal matters
The Union Cabinet has approved agreement between India and Morocco on mutual legal assistance in criminal matters. The Union Cabinet was chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The agreement will provide broad legal framework for bilateral cooperation between India and Morocco in investigation and prosecution of crime, restraint, tracing, forfeiture or confiscation or proceeds and instruments of crime. It will also increase effectiveness in investigation and prosecution of crime and provide necessary peaceful ambience which is pre-requisite for development of society as a whole. It will further be also instrumental in gaining better inputs and insights in modus operandi of terrorists and organised criminals, which in turn can be used to fine-tune policy decisions in the field of internal security.
