The video, which has been circulating on Facebook and YouTube this past week, caused considerable controversy. While some deemed the violence “unacceptable” and “humiliating,” others claimed that the officer was simply doing his job.More than simply provoking controversy, the video also helped expose the police officer to the DGSN.Abdellatif Hammouchi, the director of the DGSN, decided Friday to forward his case tour the disciplinary council and suspended him from all his duties as member of security services.
