SANA’A – The former Hadi regime governor of Shabwah has demanded 175 million riyals for the evacuation of his residence, in order to make a place for the new governor who was recently appointed last week.
Local sources confirmed that Hadi’s former governor in Shabwa, Ali Rashid al-Harthy, has refused to evacuate the house for the newly appointed Governor until the exiled government of Hadi pays its full dues exceeding 175 million riyals.
According to several activists in Shabwa, they said that al-Harthy claimed 100 million riyals for personal losses, in addition to 35 million riyals under the name of maintenance facilities he paid from his own money, as well as an amount of 40 million rewards that were awarded by Hadi but which the former governor has not received.
However, sources also asserted that Hadi’s former governor in Shabwah did not provide any services to the province; he only looted public money and expanded the financial and administrative corruption dramatically and extensively.
The revelations further showcase the endemic corruption that is typical for the Saudi-backed Hadi regime.
Recently, an organization of Shabwa revolutionaries has declared its separation from the Hadi regime, calling for the Saudi-led invasion forces to leave the province immediately and had over power to them.
