Saudi authorities arrest Bin Dagher

SANAA, Oct. 21 (YPA) – Saudi authorities arrested  former Prime Minister of exiled Hadi government, Ahmed Obaid bin Dagher, in Saudi capital a few days ago and taken to an unknown location, diplomatic sources reported.

The sources said that a group of Royal Security Service members came to the residence of Bin Dagher and asked him to go with them without any discussion, pointing out that the communications have been interrupted since then.

According to the decision of dismissal, the Saudi authorities have been conducting investigations with Bin Dagher for days, without disclosing his health.

This comes after the exiled President Abd Rabo Hadi issued a decision last week to dismiss Bin Dagher as prime minister and refer him to the investigation for not taking measures to address the economic meltdown.
