http://www.worldtimezone.com/dst_news/dst_news_morocco06.htmlSeveral things to 
check here:1. The infomediarie.ma reference indicates that the change 
happens "chaque année";

than for just this year,   yes?2. The infomediarie.ma reference specifies 
a "fall back" time of 03H00,

day expected to be 2:00 a.m.?3. For the "no DST during the month of Ramadan" 
exception, is it known whether   a. clocks will be adjusted on the first day of 
Ramadan, the day before the

light folks can shed.        --ado

1. Yes, every year DST starts at last Sunday of March and ends at last Sunday 
of September.

2. According to pic from Marrakesh web site: 

spring forward expected to be 2:00 a.m ...
however have to wait for official docs.
