FCO issues updated information on parental child abduction in Morocco
Parental child abduction can be a civil or a criminal offence in Morocco. The abduction is looked upon as an ‘illegal displacement’ of the child and is considered a criminal act when one of the parents lodges a complaint against the other.
There is currently no agreed international system in place to return children from Morocco to the UK. Neither the British government nor the British Embassy can force the abducting parent or the Moroccan government to return a child to the UK.
