Said Chaou was held end of June 2017 after two international arrest warrants issued by the Moroccan courts. Morocco suspects him of international drug trafficking, corruption and involvement in a criminal organisation. However, according to Morocco, he was also involved in the financing of the month-long protests in the Rif region of Northern Morocco.

According to the Dutch Ministry of security and justice Chaou was held for extradition after Morocco had given guarantees that he will not be prosecuted for his political activities. Chaou opposes extradition to Morocco. He doubts seriously to the guarantees granted to Morocco. The promise that he not for political activities will be prosecuted, according to his lawyer is worthless.

Chaou is since July 2017 at liberty, but does have a single band and hailing.
