Wikileaks: i padroni del mattone in Marocco

2010-12-04

Secondo la redattrice del dispaccio segreto del 12 ottobre 2009 che riporto qua sotto, pubblicato ieri sul sito di Wikileaks, e cioè la Consul General di Casablanca Elisabeth Millard, in Marocco sono solo 3 le persone che decidono in campo immobiliare:

  1. Fouad El-Himma, ex Vice-ministro degli interni e fondatore del Partito dell’autenticità e della modernità;
  2. Mohamed Mounir al-Majidi, segretario del re.
  3. Il re.

Leggete il cablogramma per capire in che modo questa cosa succede.

E.O. 12958: DECL: 12/10/2019

TAGS: ECON EINV EFIN MO PGOV
SUBJECT: PALACE COERCION PLAGUES MOROCCO'S REAL ESTATE

SECTOR

Classified By: Consul General Millard for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d).

1.  (C) SUMMARY:  At a December 9 meeting, one of Morocco's leading

business entrepreneurs XXXXXXXXXXXX, told EconOff that

major institutions and processes of the Moroccan state are being used

by the Palace to coerce and solicit bribes in the country's real

estate sector.  XXXXXXXXXXXX made clear to his XXXXXXXXXXXX interlocutors that Morocco's

major investment decisions were in reality made by three individuals

in the Kingdom:  Fouad El Himma the former Deputy Minister of

Interior who now heads the Party of

Authenticity and Modernity, Mohamed Mounir Al Majidi who is the head

of the King's private secretariat, and the King himself.  "To have

discussions with anyone else would be a waste of time", XXXXXXXXXXXX that,

contrary to popular belief, corruption in the real estate sector

during the reign of King Mohammed VI is becoming more, not less,

pervasive.  END SUMMARY.



---------------------------

A TALE OF ROYAL PROPORTIONS

---------------------------



2.  (C) XXXXXXXXXXXX major

institutions and processes of the Moroccan state are used by the

Palace to coerce and solicit bribes in the real estate sector.  While

corrupt practices existed during the reign of King Hassan II,

XXXXXXXXXXXX, they have become much more institutionalized

with

King Mohammed VI.  Institutions such as the royal family's holding

company, Omnium Nord Africaine (ONA), which now clears most large

development projects, regularly coerce developers into granting

beneficial rights to ONA, XXXXXXXXXXXX



3.  XXXXXXXXXXXX


4.  (C) XXXXXXXXXXXX  ONA's XXXXXXXXXXXX

reportedly told his interlocutors that Morocco's major investment

decisions were effectively made by three individuals:  the King,

Fouad El Himma the former Deputy Minister of Interior who now leads

the Palace-backed Party

of Authenticity and Modernity, and Mohamed Mounir Al

Majidi, who is the head of the King's private secretariat and his

principal financial advisor.

Comment

5.  (C) XXXXXXXXXXXX reality, of which most

Moroccans dare only whisper -- the influence and commercial interest

of the King and some of his advisors in virtually every major real

estate project here.  A former U.S. Ambassador to the Morocco, who

remains closely connected to the Palace, separately lamented to us

what he termed the appalling greed of those close to King Mohammed

VI.  This phenomenon seriously undermines the good governance that

the Moroccan government is working hard to promote.
