Government spokesperson avoids responding directly to the rigging of Russian gasoline prices and cites statistics on Morocco’s typical imports

The government ‘s official spokesperson, Mustapha Baytas, didn’t give a clear answer to the Federal Deputy Parliament’s accusations that Russian gasoline was imported at a discount and sold to Moroccans for a higher price based on prices traded on other international markets.

After the Government Council on Thursday, Baytas gave statistics on Morocco’s average imports of Russian gasoline, which have been expected to be around 9% in 2020, 2021, and 2022.

In order to keep Morocco’s power costs under control, the Minister emphasized that the government has made significant efforts to buy Russian coal.
Baytas emphasized that the average price of gasoline was defined by convergence from different sources, namely Russian sources, and that this was based on the law of supply and demand.
