Template:Infobox officeholder Mohamed Mediouri (Template:Lang-ar; born 8 April 1938 in Marrakesh)[1] was the chief of the personal security of Hassan II and his senior bodyguard.[2]

Outside of his official security position inside the palace, he was the president of Kawakab Marrakesh football club and the Moroccan Athletics federation.[1]

After the death of Hassan II he married his widow Lalla Latifa and settled in France.[3][4] He was discharged of all of his official positions.

Mediouri was also involved in business, he was the exclusive distributor of Motorola Talkie Walkies in Morocco.[3] His son reportedly still runs this business.[3]

Early life

Mohammed Mediouri started his career as policeman in the CMI (compagnie marocaine d'intervention),[3] the riot control division of the Moroccan police. After the coups attempts of the early 1970s Hassan II realised that his security was insufficient and tasked Raymond Sassia (former bodyguard of Charles de Gaulle) with the formation of a new security for the monarch.[2] Sassia recruited and trained Mediouri among others, but he became close to the king and he eventually replaced Sassia in the late 1970s as chief of security in the royal palace.[2]
