The Moroccan man was asked by Guardia Civil to open the suitcase at the border control in Beni-Enzar, between Morocco and the Spanish enclave of Melilla, in North Africa.
He was dragging a large suitcase along with difficulty which aroused the officers’ suspicions.
When he was asked for ID and told to open it, he ran away, leaving the case, but was quickly caught and arrested.
When the case was opened, the Malian man got out unharmed and will be called upon as a witness to testify against the other, who was charged with violating the rights of foreigners.
