According to the same source, Abdullah Bakkali stated that he owns another “apartment, near Tangier.”
Abullah Bakkali concluded by saying, “You see, I have neither a villa in Hay Riad nor an apartment in Agdal [two of the most prestigious districts in Rabat], and my wife is only an 11th grade teacher.”
