STC blocks Islah and Hadi government’s funds in Aden

The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) announced, on Saturday, a complete quarantine of all funds owned by the Islah Party and the exiled Hadi government in Aden province, judicial sources said.

Director of Moral Guidance in the STC, Ali al-Walidi said that the southern council will not allow withdrawal of any money from the Central Bank in Aden, no matter what.

The move to block the funds comes as exiled Hadi’s government announced that the salaries of Islah militants will be disbursed in Abyan, Shabwa, Taiz and Marib provinces.
