While acknowledging the efficiency of Morocco’s security efforts, the project seeks to improve the country’s record on curbing irregular migration and human trafficking. Rabat – The European Union (EU) and the United Nations Regional Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) for the Middle East and North Africa launched in Rabat a project to dismantle cross-border criminal networks involved in human trafficking and migrant smuggling in North Africa. The project seeks to support Morocco and other North African nations in dismantling irregular migration networks active in the region. The project also seeks to assist security services to have the ability to identify and investigate such cases, while protecting the victims. El Pais said that Morocco managed to cut irregular migration in Spain by half this year.
