Morocco, Politics, 7/30/1999
The Moroccan government denied on Thursday press reports on the marriage of King Mohammed Ben Al-Hassan.
"The government flatly denies the rumors on the marriage of King Mohammed Ben Al-Hassan," the spokesman for the Moroccan government, Khalid Alioua, said at a press briefing held at the end of the weekly meeting of the government council, chaired by Prime Minister Abderrahmane Youssoufi.
The government also denied the rumors on the demise of Moulay Driss Ouazzani, spouse of Princess Lalla Amina, youngest sister of the late King Hassan II.
"The government denies these rumors and affirms that any decision concerning the country's sacred institutions and the government services will be made public by an official communique," Alioua said.
"Anything published or said outside an official communique is groundless," he insisted, adding, "We are currently living an era of transparency wherein no action will be undertaken in this peaceful country without an official communique."
The government also urged the national press and the foreign press accredited in Morocco to avoid rumors.
