'Abdelkrim Muti'

Abdelkrim Motii (Arabic: عبد الكريم المطيع; born 25 November 1935 in Ben Ahmed) is the co-founder with Kamal Ibrahim of Chabiba islamia ("Islamic Youth") in 1969.

After being accused of implication in the December 18, 1975, assassination of Omar Benjelloun a leftist leader and journalist, Motii fled to Saudi Arabia where he was involved in the 1979 Grand Mosque seizure in Mecca.[1] He subsequently fled again to Libya where he is believed to live now in exile. He has since adopted a much more moderate attitude and declared that he is ready to go back to Morocco if he is offered enough guarantees.
