The pro-coalition leader , Yasser al-Yamani, revealed the involvement of the head of the Immigration and Passport Authority and his deputy in the legitimate government in the sale of Yemeni passports to non-Yemeni nationalities, most of them involved in terrorist operations and wanted security.
“I have documents and names of non-Yemeni nationalities, the majority of whom are wanted for security. The Yemeni passport was sold to each person with $ 20,000 to $ 30,000 by the head of the Immigration and Passports Department and his deputy, Abdul-Jabbar and Yasser al-Obeidi,” Director of the Automated System, al-Yamani said on his Facebook site, as well as Ziad Al-Ramli ,Aljbubi and some employees of embassies and consulates. ”
Al-Yamani added in his publication: “We hope from the government side to form an urgent committee to inspect, investigate, hold accountable and deal with this communication seriously and responsibly and I take full responsibility for my statement.
He threatened to publish the names involved in the sale of passports to public opinion if the commission did not constitute an urgent investigation to detect passports sold by the migration and passport gang.
Diplomatic sources revealed, months ago, that the Yemeni government,loyal to the coalition, through its offices in Riyadh, had issued Yemeni passports to a number of foreign nationalities.
In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 60,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
However, Saudi Arabia relies heavily on the US in its brutal war on Yemen. Washington has deployed a commando force on the Arab kingdom’s border with Yemen to help destroy arms belonging to Yemen’s popular Houthi Ansarullah movement. Washington has also provided logistical support and aerial refueling.
