Ridouan Taghi or the trial of all dangers and threats

Ridouan Taghi, no longer to present, he is considered the most dangerous man in the Netherlands and Europe’s biggest drug trafficker. True instigator of the crime of the “La Crème” coffee shop in the heart of Marrakech, he is currently being prosecuted for numerous murders, smuggling, money laundering, attempted kidnappings…

The one who was arrested in Dubai in 2019, does not stop, even from the bottom of his cell, to defray the chronicles by ordering crimes. Suspected of having killed or had several people killed, including rivals but also journalists and lawyers, he is counted among his “future” crimes threats of kidnapping or violence against public figures, which makes people fear the worst. Netherlands.

The so-called “Marengo” trial of this 45-year-old Dutch man of Moroccan origin, who arrived in the Netherlands at the age of two, born but not raised in Morocco, is being held in the suburbs of Amsterdam in a ultra-secure complex under high surveillance since September.

He is the head of the powerful organization “Mocro Maffia” (Mocro being a contraction of Marokko) in this case, which reigns over the traffic of cocaine in Europe from the Belgian port of Antwerp. Ridouan Taghi will have to report to the Justice of the Netherlands, with about fifteen of his accomplices including his faithful right arm, Saïd Razzouki, apprehended by the FBI in February 2020 in Colombia.

The defendants, several of whom risk life in prison (death penalty abolished since 1871 in the Netherlands), must answer for thirteen murders or attempted murders committed between 2015 and 2017. But many other murders linked to drug trafficking -a around a hundred have been recorded in the kingdom, as well as shootings or various attacks against the media.

Aside from murders, drug trafficking in all its forms, money laundering, what’s in the news right now is the attempted kidnappings that are said to be plotting that make the news in the Netherlands and elsewhere.

The Belgian Minister of Justice, Vincent Van Quickenborne, knows things about him who was recently threatened with a kidnapping and urgently sheltered with his family in a secure residence for several days.

The Dutch Prime Minister, Mark Rutte, had to trade his bicycle in The Hague for an armored car surrounded by a strong police guard. The Crown Princess, Amalia, who went to the University of Amsterdam every day, can only with difficulty leave the royal palace.

Indeed ten days ago, the Dutch royal couple had caused a shock by announcing that their daughter, Crown Princess Amalia, 18, could no longer leave the Huis ten Bosch palace, in this city on the coast, for go to the University of Amsterdam, where she studies. A radical change for this 18-year-old young woman who was studying like everyone else. The Dutch Prime Minister and Crown Princess Amalia are suddenly forced to live under police protection to avoid being kidnapped. They could possibly be used as bargaining chips with Ridouan Taghi.

These threats are therefore taken very seriously, as this man is capable of anything. The lawyer and the brother of one of his men, repentant, who had denounced him to the police were killed in front of the courthouse. An investigative journalist, who had worked on this mafia and therefore on the trafficker’s blacklist, was murdered. A prosecutor lives under high protection, other magistrates have been threatened. A 23-year-old man, a member of a rival gang, was beheaded.

The list of his misdeeds would be long and there is the affair of the La Crème café in Marrakech which, by mistake, cost the life of an innocent person. The risks are considered so high that the lawyers for the civil parties plead with a mask on their face to guarantee their anonymity. This grandson of a drug trafficker who brought cannabis from Morocco arrived in Utrecht (Netherlands) with his family when he was only two years old. Yet he was a good student, he even went so far as to study the science of education at university, while selling a few drugs on the side.
