(Via Twitter) @BaFana3 Developing story in #Yemen : Man arrested for failed bid to kill judge in #Hadhramaut admits he killed 28 others. Who does he work for?

Additional

It was really an usual news to hear that a security guy in the Republic of Yemen RY shoot the assassin who was chasing him in the street of Sana’a on the 12th of March 2014; and the assassin was sent to the near by hospital to rescue him. On the same day, another assassin who was trying to kill a judge in the city of Sayoon, i.e. the biggest city in the Valley of Hadramout, was caught as well with others!! Wow very impressive!! Two days later 3 assassin’s were caught in Aden, i.e the capital of the former state in South before 1990.

Lets talk about each case with some details provided from news by public and officials!!

Sayoon Case:
Judge Adana Al Hamid survived miraculously an assassination attempt by Fua’ad Ba Naseeb, the assassin, but the other(s) 1 OR 2 with him was (or were) kept uncovered!!

later on, a “high authority” in Sana’a were insisting to transfer the assassin, i.e. Fua’ad Ba Naseeb, to Sana’a for investigation!! however, the security people in Sayoon refused it at once and insisted to carry the investigation in Hadramout which was welcomed by President Hadi. More news were coming day after day, the officials in Hadramout said they have very valuable information about a call the assassin received regarding the assassination attempt but the ID of the caller was uncovered. Moreover, the authorities in Hadramout mentioned that they arrested 3 who are related to assassination in Hadramout without mentioning names.

Just late last night, the assassin, i.e. Fua’ad Ba Naseeb, admitted that he fired 4 bullets and he hided the gun in Syaoon International Football field. In addition, 2 names came in the investigation one is called “Al Katheeri”!! and the 3rd is called ” Hassan B” but he is not captive!!

Aden Case:

The official news paper Al Jamhoriah mentioned that Judge Mohammed Ahmed Al Shagdari survived an assassination attempt on14th of March 2014 by a group of people while a Political Security PSO guy. i.e. Tariq Sharaf, was passing by the crime scene and exchanged fire with the group and he was killed while injured one attacker whose name is Marwan Mohammed Al Jokar. The other 2, who were arrested later on, are Redwan Ahmed Al Jokar and Sami Kasim ben Kasim. However, NO updates since the day of the indecent!!!!!

Sana’a Case:
On 12th of March 2014, around noon time, an assassin was chasing an officer from PSO but the officer managed to shoot and injure OR kill the assassin who was taken to the near by hospital. The scene was near Coffee Trader area next to Al Khaimah restaurant. No news about the name of the PSO officer or the assassin, and whether he was killed or injured. Everything was kept so uncovered since the indecent and NO updates about what so ever in the news!!!

http://www.yemensaeed.com/news/news-local/14056-2014-03-12-16-19-08.html

It is worth mentioning that Mr. Ghalib Al Qamish was appointed as an ambassador after 33 years of being the head of PSO along with Mr. Abdual kader Kahtan, former minister of interior, on the 7th of March 2014.

Update: People in Hadramout are highly interacting with the arrested assassin, i.e. Fua’ad Ba Naseeb, case.

More news are leaked from the investigation room, and more names are discoverer day after day. While a “High Authority” in Sana’a is demanding to transfer him to Sana’a for “Full investigation”, people in Hadramout calling to keep him in Sayoon to uncover all details to the public and to the families of victims as they already know that if he is transferred to Sana’a he will be killed and the case will be closed. A similar case in Sana’a happened at the same day, i.e. 12th of March 2014, and NO news of it at all which makes the calls to investigate Fua’ad Ba Naseeb in Sana’a so fishy. Therefore, there is a big movement among the community in Hadramout to stop the “transfer” to Sana’a and proposals like forming human wall around the lockup place of Fua’ad Ba Naseeb are proposed.

Most, if not all, pro Islah news outlets are accusing Hirak of doing it and suggesting Fua’ad Ba Naseeb being part of Hirak. No one heard of him being of Hirak at all, and his political views are not met with Hirak. If he was with Hirak, then some of Fua’ad Ba Naseeb victims would pro Islah members in Hadramout!! instead, his victims were anti-Oil Mafia and anti-terrorism; while Islah members, Oil Mafia members and fanatics remain untouched for the past 3 years!!!!

Weapons, from same

The Military Police seized 2 trucks, one is of Mercedes brand and the other is of Dyna Toyota brand, full of weapons and explosives were heading to Shabwah!!

The 2 trucks were caught last Tuesday by a military check point and kept at Brigade 27 Mechanical for some days for negotiation which resulted into “royalty payment” of 4 million Yemeni Riyals.

The military check point told the Military Police which seized all of it after the release from Brigade 27 Mechanical. Some news say the loads were unloaded to the General Security Camp in Hadramout.

It has been said that these consignments belong to Mohammed Ali Mohsen (not the son of the famous Ali Mohsen) who is the Yemeni Military attache in Doha now, and he was Pro Ali Mohsen during 2011 against the ousted Saleh when he was the head of the Eastern Military Zone which was based in Hadramout!!! Some suggested that this action comes into escalation of violence game in Hadramout by big players.

It is worth mentioning that this news comes after an indecent of “Al Qaidah” seizing a big weapons consignment, approximatly 10 days ago, between Marib and Hadramout which was coming from Hadramout!! and the number of “Al Qaidah” who seized it were ONLY 2!! very brave ones wow.

HRW: “The (Yemeni) Central Security Forces’ failure to stop the shooting suggests either gross negligence or complicity with the gunmen”

Filed under: Mahweet, Protest Fatalities, Sana'a, Security Forces, political violence — by Jane Novak at 10:03 am on Thursday, September 27, 2012

This is a thorough summary of the March 18, 2011 massacre in Yemen including the literal firewall that kept protesters in the square after the snipers opened fire and the role of Yahya Saleh, head of one of the US supported CT units. The US desire to retain Yahya and Ahmed Ali in their roles as heads of the CT forces is one of the main obstacles to a peaceful transition of power so maybe Obama should sanction himself.

The March 18 massacre was so egregious and barbaric that half the corrupted regime defected to the side of the protesters. The US however withheld from calling for Saleh’s removal. In fact, US Def Sec Gates announced days later that the US had done no post-Saleh planning and, “We’ve had a good working relationship with President Saleh. He’s been an important ally in the counter-terrorism arena.”

BTW the son of the governor of Mahweet from post, Yemen: Son of governor escapes justice after massacre:

And yes, the US/SA/UN granted immunity for the Saleh regime does tend to complicate matters.

Yemen: Massacre Investigation Badly Flawed
Conduct New Probe Into 2011 Killings of 45 Protesters

(Sanaa, September 27, 2012) – The previous Yemeni government’s investigation into the so-called Friday of Dignity massacre on March 18, 2011, in Yemen’s capital is marred throughout by flaws and political interference, Human Rights Watch said today.

The Yemeni authorities should order a new inquiry into the attack, the deadliest by pro-government gunmen on protesters during the 2011 uprising, Human Rights Watch said. The attack in Sanaa killed 45 people and wounded up to 200 others, and became a symbol of resistance to then-president Ali Abdullah Saleh. The criminal trial of 78 defendants in the case is scheduled to begin on September 29, 2012.

“The previous government’s investigation of the Friday of Dignity killings was deeply flawed and may have been a brazen attempt to shield government officials from prosecution,” said Letta Tayler, senior Yemen researcher at Human Rights Watch. “Yemen’s new government should demonstrate its commitment to justice for serious rights abuses by carrying out a new inquiry.” (Read on …)

Justice Minister gets death threat after statement about seizing former regime’s funds

Filed under: Corruption, GPC, Judicial, Ministries, Post Saleh, assassination, political violence — by Jane Novak at 8:54 am on Sunday, September 16, 2012

Many ranking members of Ali Abdullah Saleh’s former regime made millions through corruption, embezzlement and fraud. The Obama administration continuously blocked all efforts to freeze Saleh’s funds in addition to providing him political cover. Every now and then somebody mumbles something about sanctioning those who block the political transition at the same time that its clear the purse of Saleh et al is what is funding the counter-revolution, like Saddam and the Fedayeen.

Alsahwah.net- Minister of Justice Murshid Al-Arashani received threats of killing by unknown persons on Friday.

A source of the ministry said that they received a letter on late Friday in which the minister was threatened with assassination.

These threats came after Al-Arashani said on Tuesday that Yemen prepares to pursue funds that were looted by the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh and his aides.

In a forum held in Qatar on recovering frozen assets of fallen Arab autocrats, Al-Arashani stressed that those officials who looted funds of the Yemeni people will be hunted through mechanisms of civil laws.

Witness: 100’s defected soldiers, protesters whipped, electrocuted, tortured inside Yemeni military camp

Filed under: Military, Sana'a, Transition, political violence, prisons, protest statements — by Jane Novak at 8:43 am on Wednesday, January 18, 2012

But its not a problem for the US, UN and GCC which all strongly endorse an immunity package for the Saleh regime and consider the Yemeni public a nuisance.

Yemen Post: The Yemeni Human Rights Organization, HOOD, has affirmed that hundreds of officers, troops and protesters are being detained and brutally tortured inside military camps affiliated to the outgoing President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
The body said that these soldiers were detained due their support to anti-regime protests.

Hood indicated that the Yemeni authorities have recently released 44 detainees from the Central Prison in Sana’a.

Yemen security and army services have arbitrarily detained hundreds of peaceful protesters across the country, subjecting them to torture and ill-treatment, since anti-government demonstrations began in February 2011.

“A military court has recently released four officers and troops of the Special Forces Service led by son of Saleh, Ahmed,” Hood said.”They were arrested on charges of taking part in anti-regime demonstrations.”

One of the released persons revealed that 75 protesters and 70 soldiers of the defected First Armored Division are being held inside a custody in Alsama’a military camp located in Arhab district of Sana’a governorate.

The protester told Yemeni activists that he was kidnapped from the capital in December, 2011, pointing out that he was immediately transferred to this camp.

He said he was subject to brutal forms of tortures, including electro-shock devices and beating with cables and whips, as he was blindfolded and handcuffed.

Yemenis have been demonstrating across the country demanding the release of hundreds of detainees held by Security services which are still controlled by people loyal to Saleh.

Yemeni activists had urged all international human rights organizations to press on the Yemeni regime to release all detainees who are subject to brutal torture.

The exact number of detainees being held by the authorities is unknown, but activists say that it could be as high as 1,400.

35 hurt in Yemen protester clashes AFP

SANAA — Clashes between Yemeni youths divided over a power transfer deal that grants President Ali Abdullah Saleh immunity from prosecution left 35 people injured on Tuesday, witnesses and medics said.

“Some 2,000 members of the Islamist Sunni Al-Islah (reform) party, among them dissident soldiers, attacked our camp at dawn, injuring 35 people,” Khalid al-Madani, head of the camp backed by supporters of Shiite Zaidi rebels, told AFP. (Read on …)
