Moroccan Girl Kidnapped in Bolivia Returns to Spain

LA PAZ Ė The 9-year-old girl rescued in Bolivia after being kidnapped and held captive for seven months in the Andean nation, returns Saturday to Spain where her family lives, police officials told Efe.

The girl of Moroccan nationality will travel on a regular flight and her arrival at Madrid-Barajas Airport is scheduled for Monday around 5:00 a.m. (0400 GMT), according to the same officials.

The kidnapping of the minor became known last week, after Spanish and Bolivian police freed her from her captor, a Bolivian who is under arrest and behind bars in the central Bolivian city of Cochabamba.

The Attorney Generalís Office of Bolivia has charged the kidnapper, Grover Morales, with crimes of people trafficking, criminal association and sexual abuse, the office of Attorney General Ramiro Guerrero said this week.

Also jailed is Moralesí mother, accused of being an accomplice to the kidnapping.

The little girl, who lives in the northeastern Spanish town of LíHospitalet de Llobregat, was held captive in an area of Bolivian jungle for seven months, until a week ago.

The rescue operation, particularly difficult because it had to penetrate an almost inaccessible jungle area, was carried out with the coordination of Bolivian and Spanish police and the backing of the Spanish Embassy in La Paz.

The suspected captor, who lived in Spain since over a year ago, was a friend of the girlís parents, who gave their permission for her to accompany him, supposedly on vacation, to the Andean country.

The girl arrived in Bolivia in August 2013, after which the family lost contact with her and reported her disappearance to the Catalan police.
