Yemen’s AQAP and the convicted Sami Dayan estranged

Filed under: Abyan, arrests, assassination, political violence, state jihaddists — by Jane Novak at 3:18 pm on Saturday, May 10, 2014

IN the 2009 battle in Jaar, two aspects of jihaddists were fighting each other. Locals and Sami Dayan were on one side, that was clear. AQAP was on the other. I characterized it at the time as local jihaddists verses those from outside and mostly from Marib. Apparently AQAP expelled Sami from Jaar during their takeover and fatwa’d him

The following article says that Sami Dayan and AQAP remained estranged, and covers other important elements of Sami Dayan’s life and seemingly bogus conviction for the murder of the heroic anti- al Qaeda fighter, General Qatan. While AQAP are brutal tyrants and terrorist murderers, they are also a more reliable source than the Yemeni government. When AQAP makes a statement, like they had no connection to him, its most often true. Interestingly Sami Dayan is the nephew of dialoging Judge Hamoud al Hittar (no guilt by association, just mentioning).

The article also says the kidnapping of the Saudi consul was orchestrated with support from state actors (actors who belong to the state apparatus, not on behalf of the state.) who became panicked when the Consul was sold to AQAP who wouldn’t release him for ransom as ordered. Dovetailing with this is the statement by his family that Sami was mediating on behalf of authorities for the Consul’s release and received a large sum of money prior to his arrest.

Also his 15 year sentence is odd and an anomaly. According to the penal code, it should have been more. The normal deal for those who go to jail “for the good of the country” is to serve half the term, if that much.

Yafe news reprinted: Yafa News: Facts and uncover secrets about Sammy and Diane kidnapping and killing of the Saudi Consul General Cotton
Yafa News – particularly in conjunction with the case of Sami Diane is a young man in the three and twenty-year-old was born in Jaar in Abyan province, arrested him Yemeni authorities on June 21, 2012 AD Aden. He was transferred directly to Sanaa aboard a private plane, brought him directly to the U.S. embassy and then moved to a house President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi. He is accused by the Yemeni authorities of involvement in most of the operations that targeted officers security in Aden and its suburbs and numbered (41). An officer for more than a year ago, also spoke recently, security sources for his involvement in the abduction of the Saudi consul Abdullah al-Khalidi, and involvement in the assassination of Martyr Brigade Salem Cotton (Katan), commander of the southern military.

However that there is a witness Sami Diane several times wearing a weapon and touring in several places in the provinces of Lahj, Aden and Abyan. The controversy that has prevailed between the leaders of Ansar al-Sharia and Sami Diane recently during their control of Abyan province, they expelled Sami Diane from his home in Jaar, which was confirmed by news journalist then making Sami Diane resort to a mountainous area Baaf. Al Qaeda issued a statement after the arrest of Diane denied it any connection betweem Sami Diane and al-Qaeda, which confirms that the points of a window had been working on the exploitation of stupidity Diane for the implementation of their criminal operations and cancel relevant about Diane, who has not attained the age of more than twenty-three years.

Sami Dayan wrongfully convicted of the assassination of General Qatan?

Either it was murder for hire or someone just picked the nearest jihaddi stooge as a scapegoat, and Sami Dayan was near to certain top Yemeni officials. General Qatan was a very effective leader in the battles against AQAP in Abyan. Knowing who really arranged his murder would indicate where powerful support for al Qaeda exists in the current official state structure.

Googlish, Arabic below Yafa News:

The importance of the subject, and to coincide with a court ruling today, incarcerating him for 15 years, accused of the assassination of the martyr brigade “Salem Cotton” .. re “young News” publication of excerpts from achieving previously published, about the character, “Sami Diane” and accused him of the murder of “cotton” and the kidnapping of the Saudi consul “Abdullah al-Khalidi,” as we publish a message father “Sammy” judge “preferred Diane,” which he sent to the site after the arrest, “his son.”

(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.
