Alsahwa Net- The Houthis have started a gain collection of illegal taxes from small and large businesses in the capital Sana’a.
Sources quoted by the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat daily Newspaper, said that the Houthis militants carried out field surprise visits to commercial shops and offices of companies asking for enforced payment of illegal taxes.
Businesses have been asked to pay between YR5,000 to 60,000 according to the size of the business.
Dozens of merchants and staff members were arrested for rejection to pay the illegal taxes.
“We barely took breath form the previous collection of illegal taxes to be surprised by new one,” one business owner who requested anonymity said.
The Houthis have been intimidating businesses in areas of their control with never-stopped chains of illegal tax collection to finance their military effort against the government forces.
