The negative role of the United Nations and Security Council in Yemen was underlined by the National Organization for Rights, Freedom and Development. The organization accused the positions and decisions of the United Nations and the Security Council that did not deal with the injustice of the Yemeni people, who are suffering a genocide. Indeed the Saudi aggression during 700 days committed crimes against civilians using also internationally banned weapons, causing more than 30,000 causalities and destroying all the necessities of life. Even results of the last meeting of the Security Council regarding Yemen was not approved by the Organization.
On Tuesday, police remanded a former senior member of the National Security Council on suspicion of bribery offences, moneylaundering, breach of trust and fraud. Another suspect was also remanded on suspicion of involvement in the offences. The senior official promoted the affairs of a private businessman living abroad while serving in his previous role. In return he received bribes including favors and funds which were transferred to him or his family without reporting his connection to the businessman as required.
