Yemen refuses Houthi interference in government

The Yemeni government yesterday renewed its refusal of the Houthis' interference in the work of state institutions, the Anadolu Agency reported.

In an exceptional meeting for the government, headed by Khaled Bahah, the government discussed the group's "illegal" interference in the work of the ministries.

It said: "Mixing between official and non-official authorities will never achieve anything more than chaos well it reinforces corruption."

"The government will take deterrent measures against anyone who is proved to be involved in corruption," the Anadolu Agency reported a government statement as saying.

Last week, the government condemned a Houthi raid on the house of the chief editor of Al-Thwara newspaper Faisal Makram and forcing him to step down.

After their domination of the capital, the Houthis were spread inside a number of ministries under the name of the "Revolutionary Committees" claiming they would observe the government's work.
