Sana'a, NewsYemen, private:

 In light of the speeches of the UN envoy to Yemen, Hans Grundberg, and the allegations of disbursing the salaries of state employees cut off since September 2016, the Houthi militia is seeking to anticipate any future agreement in this context, by circumventing the agreement in advance and controlling the mechanisms of any expected disbursement of employee salaries in all governorates of the Republic.

Local sources revealed to (NewsYemen) that the Houthi militia summoned employees of the armed and security forces, who had previously downloaded their names from the payroll, when they refused to join its ranks, noting that they received verbal promises to pay their salaries again, and that they must register their attendance  With what is called militarily (perfection), and then their participation in successive military parades.

At the same time, the Houthi militia is trying to market misleading information among local communities, during which it is trying to show the delegation of the Houthi militia in the alleged truce negotiations, keen and adhering to the condition of disbursing the salaries of state employees, in a clear fraud targeting the arm of a large job category that has been forcibly excluded during the past 6 years.

To that, the Houthi leader, Rashid Abu Lahoum, appointed to the position of Minister of Finance, hastened to invent the so-called networking as a new (virtual) mechanism that controls (central) employee payroll, including employees of some government institutions with financial independence, and displaced employees in the liberated governorates.

In anticipation of any alleged agreement that talks about disbursing the salaries of civil servants, employees in Sana’a are demanding the adoption of the 2014 payroll payroll, before the Houthi militia tampered with it, and the adoption of a direct disbursement mechanism between employees and the Ministry of Finance in the legitimate government.

In his recent briefing to the Security Council, the UN envoy to Yemen, Hans Grundberg, referred to the elements of the expanded truce proposal and its attendant tangible impact on Yemeni men and women, noting that his proposal includes an agreement on a transparent and effective mechanism for the regular payment of salaries of civil servants and the pensions of civilian retirees, in addition to opening  Additional routes in Taiz and other governorates, more destinations to and from Sana’a International Airport and regular fuel flow to all Hodeidah ports.
