Houthis milk major telecom company for their own use

Alsahwa Net-Sources in Sana’a revealed parts of management and financial corruption the Houthis officials exercise against the state-partially -owned cellular-phone company, Yemen Mobile.

The London-based Daily Asharq Al-Awsat Newspaper quoted sources in Sana’a that the Houthis armed group has now full control over the cell-phone company after they designated their affiliated leaders in high-ranking positions of the company’s administration.

 They appointed Esam Al-Hamli, chairman of the board, Mohamed Sharafaldin, chief financial officer and Abdulmalik Al-Mutwakel, chief marketing officer.

Al-Hamli was chosen for the chairman post because he formerly worked as the communication official for the Houthis in Sa’ada before being brought to Sana’a.

Al-Mutwakel was given the marketing position because of his contact with the Houthis key leader of Sana’a, Khaled Al-Madani. Al-Mutwakel is also notorious for financial corruption during his former job at the state-run Yemen Petroleum Company.

These three newly appointed officials at the telecom company, share the same family origin with the Houthis’ leader, Abdulmalik Al-Houthi who say that that they come from Prophet Mohamed’s descendants and therefore should be given a divine right to rule others as well as occupy high public posts.

The three new officers of the company has prepared a list of the present senior officers of the company to be replaced by Houthis-affiliated personnel, according to the sources quoted by the Asharq Al-Awsat.

So far, the new chief of the board transferred illegally YR500 million ($900,000) to Houthis-run charity organizations.

The three men are accused of doing illegal cash transfer on a daily basis to Houthis-affiliated organizations, Houthis’ influential leaders or for group military operations.

This Houthis-affiliated new management has also increased the tariff of the 3g mobile data despite poor service or slow connection the entire the day which affects around four million active customers.
