'Saleh and Al-Houthi are obstructing the political process in Yemen'

A team of experts on the sanctions committee in Yemen have found five individuals guilty of obstructing the transitional process in Yemen, an Al-Jazeera correspondent has found.

Reporter Murad Hashem, who learnt this information from a diplomatic source in the United Nations, said the committee is currently in the process of collecting evidence and information about the ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh, his son Ahmed, who is the current ambassador to the UAE, in addition to three members of the Houthi group, which is led by Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi.

In the event that the committee succeeds in collecting enough evidence against these individuals, they will forward their names to the United Nations Security Council Sanctions Committee.

The Yemeni committee hopes to have confirmed the status of its investigation and collected all the necessary information by January 25; however, several countries, including Britain, have urged the committee to expedite its investigation and begin the sanctions process sooner rather than later.
