Casablanca, Morocco (TMT)-According to a statement issued by the Moroccan authorities, more precisely issued by the Wilaya of Greater Casablanca, the “activities undertaken by Uber in Casablanca are illegal.”
The statement stressed that Uber failed to abide by the Moroccan laws as it did not apply for a “private driver license,” a license granted by the Moroccan authorities to entitle drivers and private transport companies to legally transport people.
“The activity of Uber Morocco is not allowed. All those who work for Uber, including drivers, will be subject to punishment,” said the statement.
“The authorities in the Casablanca region will take the necessary steps to stop all activities that violate the Moroccan laws in the transport sector,” the statement closed.
