Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah group has put the property of Yemeni Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Yadomi up for sale, Quds Press reported on Sunday.

The Houthis stormed Yadomi’s house in April last year when they took control of Sanaa. They seized the title deeds to the property and Yadomi’s land, which he inherited from his father and grandfather.

The leader of the Yemeni Reformation Party, linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, Yadomi is currently in Saudi Arabia. One of his family members confirmed that the Houthis have put the property up for sale. They have demanded around $280,000 to release the title deeds. Warnings have been issued against anyone dealing with the documents and those who stole the property.

The Brotherhood has supported the Saudi-led coalition against the Houthis and their allies, which include troops loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Since their 2015 “takeover”, the Houthis have arrested and kidnapped over a hundred local Brotherhood leaders, members and MPs and seized their property. A number have also been murdered by the rebel group.
