The case of the “flour miller of Boujaâd”, preventively imprisoned in the local prison of Oued Zem, accused in this of having used “carcinogenic” products in subsidized flour, risks leading to a big scandal taking with it some big caps. Indeed, the case might not splash that the only protagonist imprisoned.
It all started with a simple routine check of a seed transport truck by the Royal Gendarmerie to lead to accusations which could, if confirmed by the investigation and the courts, constitute serious crimes affecting health security and social welfare of the population.
The respondent and owner of several flour mills, a large supplier of subsidized flour and fodder on the market but which in reality does not have the size or the prerogative of the large flour millers of the country, is criticized for the use of chemicals. expired in its mills. Banned and highly carcinogenic substances with devastating effects on both humans and animals have been detected in the mills and cereals marketed by the company. It would also be reproached to the man now fallen in disgrace who more is, would have been released by his peers and the influential parties who made him famous in the region and to a lesser degree also nationally, other extremely serious acts which could not have been done without the complicity of several influential parties and even, it is said, of officials in the public service.
The affair in which our flour miller would soak to make his butter, so to speak, actually concerns the selection of seeds.

However, this was not the final destination nor of the incriminated truck, moreover, which would have put the chip in the ear of the gendarmes to trigger an investigation and lead to this affair which should fascinate and panic some.
Associations rose to denounce this affair which is growing slowly and surely like the Moroccan Association for the Protection of Public Money (AMAP) would have called for expanding the investigation to all people suspected of being involved in this matter and this, whatever their statutes. AMAP indicating that officials and elected officials would be complicit, directly or indirectly, in this scandal. The latter asserting that the accused, would have already escaped criminal sanctions in a case of embezzlement of money found in the accounts of the cooperative he headed.
The National Federation of the Flour Mill (FNM) meanwhile, took a step back from this, saying “wait for a court decision” before making a decision. For professionals in general, as for downgraded seeds, the fate is all classified, they are sent to the ovens of ONEE, cement works or steel companies to be incinerated. For now and this is the main thing, we do not deplore victims, but the open investigation is continuing, the media and social networks in the absence of real and proven information speculate who better to do better, some even advance the hypothesis of poisoning and a scandal like that of adulterated oil of the last century.
