Activists shared a screenshot of a message in which the citizen explained the truth of what happened to his friend, saying: “I have a “Prado” car and I work to deliver “customers from Sana’a to Aden,” indicating that he was stopped by a security checkpoint in the “Cairo” tour, and they ordered him to get out of his car, despite seeing a papers that explain the nature of his work.
He emphasized that they took money from him in different currencies, including dollars, Saudi riyals, and Yemeni, and said he overheard a member of the security point say, this reviles the Transitional Council, and God will not move except with five hundred thousand. He also noted that they continued to search the car for “half an hour” while the “customer” was still in it. He begged for proof that he was merely a “driver,” but they did not hear him.
The unnamed citizen added that he was beaten after the car was searched, his phone and that of the ‘customer’ were both searched, and the latter was subjected to looting. He stressed that he would not survive ‘a single day’ if someone in Sana’a did this, referring to the security that Sana’a enjoys in contrast to the city of Aden.
The areas controlled by the coalition factions are experiencing widespread security chaos, as citizens from various Yemeni regions have previously been subjected to looting, assault, and murder.
