Houthis disabled the computer terminals that were to be used by the new Central Bank headquarters in Aden, local news outlet Aden Al Ghad revealed today.

Bank workers were forced to leave work early as they could not pay salaries after the Houthis switched the system off from Sana’a.

Officials have said they are communicating with the Central Bank in Sana’a to convince officials there to enable the system.

This comes after the Houthis slammed the Yemeni government’s decision to move the Central Bank to Aden and for firing former bank governor Mohammed Awad Bin Hammam.

Yemeni Prime Minister Ahmed Obaid Bin Dagher claimed that the decision to move the Central Bank is one that would restore the country’s economy.
