Aden authorities denies responsibility for arresting former ambassador
Alsahwah.net- Aden local authorities
have denied their responsibility for arresting the former ambassador Ahmed
Abdullah al-Hassani, affirming that Yemen's intelligence services are not run
by the local authorities and that they are linked to the presidency.
The source that conditioned anonymity
said the local authorities have no information about the arrest, emphasizing
that al-Hassani was kidnapped as he landed in Aden Airport on Wednesday.
Southern activists said al-Hasani is
still held in unknown place, pointing out that armed men affiliated to
intelligence services abducted al-Hassani.
The Joint Meeting Parties of Aden had
denounced the event , accusing the remnants of the former regime led by Ali
Abdullah Saleh of arresting al-Hassani.
Al-Hassani who served as Yemen's
ambassador to Syria defected the regime in 2004 and requested the political asylum
to the United Kingdom.
A number of Yemeni prominent
oppositionists who were in exile returned home after the ouster of the former
president Ali Abdullah Saleh.
Some groups of the southern movement
declared that they will take part in the national dialogue, while some others
refuse to participate.
