UN report reveals involvement of Hadi government in corruption deals

SANAA, Jan. 28 (YPA) – Southern journalist Adel Al-Hassani said on Thursday that a United Nations report had revealed scandalous facts about the practices of higher officials in the “Hadi’s government” and its head, Maeen Abdulmalik.

“The report confirmed the involvement of Maeen Abdulmalik in suspicious financial deals in partnership with Hayel sons, Al-Karimi and others,” Al-Hasani added.

He noted that financial corruption is raging in all the conflicting forces, and that bigger matters would soon become clear, and the Saudi ambassador is also not far from all this.

The United Nations report revealed a large corruption and money laundering file caused by the Hadi’s government, as it robbed of $ 2 billion that Saudi Arabia deposited in the Central Bank of Yemen in Aden in 2018.

It was supposed that this amount would finance a credit limit to purchase commodities such as rice, sugar, milk and flour to enhance food security and to stabilize the prices of these commodities locally.

The UN investigation revealed that the bank violated the rules of changing currencies and manipulated the currency market, laundered a large part of the Saudi deposit with a complex scheme for money laundering, earning profits amounting to about $ 423 million for traders.
