Former President of the Democratic People’s Republic of Yemen Ali Nasser Mohammed has warned the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council against plans to seize his home in Aden province, southern Yemen.
President Nasser confirmed that any sale, purchase or rent of his house in al-Tawahi district, which was captured by STC gunmen, last July, is legally null and void.
The seizure of the house of former President Ali Nasser Mohammed coincided with a media propaganda campaign launched by supporters of the Southern Transitional Council, who are trying to seize the memory of the DPRY for their own propaganda.
Observers considered the seizure of the house of President Ali Nasser Mohammed an example of banditry, which had become common state of affairs in the occupied south of Yemen.
They confirmed that the seizure and looting of the house of Ali Nasser Mohammed and other former South Yemeni leaders confirms the lack of respect for the real Southern national symbols, whatever they may be.
According to observers the looting and seizure of the houses of the southern leaders brings back memories of the events witnessed in the southern provinces in January 1986, when a civil war fueled by foreign imperialists raged through the Democratic People’s Republic of Yemen, resulting in the eventual collapse of the country and seizing of power by the Saudi-backed North Yemeni leader Ali Abdullah Saleh.
