TikTok in Morocco: No Suspension Planned, Says Justice Minister

The debate over controlling or suspending TikTok has resurfaced in Parliament, focusing on the platform’s inappropriate content. During a House of Representatives plenary session, Justice Minister Abdellatif Ouahbi stated that Morocco cannot exclusively control social networks like TikTok due to the sheer volume of daily content and the platform’s global reach. He emphasized that the suspension of such platforms is a global issue, not just a national one. The Minister assured that Moroccan authorities, including the DGSN and the Public Prosecutor’s Office, are actively monitoring and controlling social media content. Despite these efforts, he acknowledged that controlling 100% of the content is nearly impossible, with an estimated 500 million fake videos evading state control in 2023. Countries like India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Jordan have banned TikTok between 2020 and 2022.
