FYCCI Warns of “Catastrophic” Repercussions for Raising Customs
The Federation of Yemeni Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FYCCI) warned, on Wednesday, of catastrophic repercussions befalling the citizen as a result of the recent decision of the Aden’s government to raise customs duties.
In a statement, the Federation called on international organizations to intervene to prevent the policy of collective punishment against the Yemenis, considering the decision reflects the failure of the authority loyal to the Saudi coalition in managing the economic file.
The statement indicated that the repercussions of the decision will burden the citizen who suffers as a result of the war and the blockade, accusing the Aden’s government of ignoring international warnings of a famine in Yemen.
The federation vowed to escalate the lawsuit against the decision and refused to implement it.
On Tuesday, dozens of merchants seemed to escalate against the decision to refrain from customs clearance of their goods in the port of Aden.
