Local sources reported that dollar exchange rates in the last hours of transactions exceeded the barrier of 1050 riyals and 270 Saudi riyals and that was after the Association of Money Changers in Aden brought it down to below 247 Saudi riyals, this indicates that the decision was political and with the agreement of STC who eager to establish a southern conference, he had expected to be launched Monday and faltered.

The new collapse has prompted the exchange companies in Aden to stop selling foreign currency only through brokers at prices that exceed its official and predetermined price, on the other hand, local sources confirmed that exchange companies in Aden constantly deal with buying foreign currencies from citizens, according to the price set by the association of money changers, about 247 thousand riyals per Saudi, in a move that prompted activists to accuse exchange companies of fraud.
