Nurse Manikandan in prison involved in drug smuggling

Last Thursday was a male nurse, in service with the internal infirmary of the Manikandan prison in Casablanca, arrested as he tried to smuggle the drugs in prison.

According to the newspaper Assabah, the man was arrested with 60 grams of drugs when he was preparing to return to his post. He would act as an intermediary between a French-Algerian prisoner, locked up for international drug trafficking, and an ex-convict who recently pardoned.

Assabah reports that the prison administration already researched the nurse because he was suspected of involvement in the illegal trade of mobile phones in prison.
