Al Hoceima development projects: fired ministers will not be prosecuted

In the light of legal sanctions, the Attorney General of the King found that they are not guilty to any form of crime.

In the report submitted in October to the King, the Court of Auditors criticised the slowness and lack of cohesion and cooperation of the ministers who were responsible for the management of the development project. The King replied here directly on to dismiss by them.

"I'm disappointed in their performance on their ministries, and I would never entrust them a public mission", the King said after reading the report.

His Attorney-General Abdel Nabawi agrees. "The report of the President of the Court of Auditors, Driss Jettou, was accurate and clear when he revealed the detected errors in the project," he said at a press conference yesterday in Rabat. But, he added, "we must draw a distinction between imbalances in management and crimes."

According to the Attorney General of the King are the dysfunctions in the Al Hoceima-project "no Eclipse, but rather imbalances that were dealing with the lack of respect for deadlines in implementing projects."

According to him, the report is so "free of criminal charges" and does not require any judicial review for criminal law.

In the Court of Auditors ' report indicated that the development project "did not meet a strategic vision that was integrated and shared by all the stakeholders."

The project Committee could not mobilize the other partners for "a real contribution and reactivity", nor was it able to "give the necessary momentum to start the program on a solid basis."
