- The UN peace mediator is facilitating things for Houthis to withdraw the Yemeni deposits in Switzerland, identical sources said. Martin Griffthis arranged a meeting between the governor of the Swiss National Bank Thomas Jordan and the governor of the Houthi rebel militia’s self-styled “governor of the Central Bank of Yemen” Hashem Almoayad who accompanied his militia’s negotiation team that is in Geneva now to meet the Yemeni government’s negotiators. “Although Almoayad has nothing to do with the expected Houthi-government talks on prisoner exchange in Geneva, he is Switzerland to withdraw the Yemeni central bank’s funds deposited in Switzerland,” a source said. The source added that the Swiss officials agreed to meet with the Houthi militant because he has the confidential codes of those bank accounts in Switzerland.”
