Overview: Yemen


The former president’s failure to leave the country immediately, while not violating the U.S.- GCC negotiated peace deal he signed in 2012 to step down as president, but it did possibly signal future attempts at political interference on the part of the Saleh ‘clan’. Faced with the apparent uncertainty surrounding Saleh’s location, some observers have argued that there should have been a clear proviso that Saleh leave the country. If the former president turned out to have remained in Yemen, then conspiracy theorists suspected that his presence was being intentionally overlooked. This despite the fact that the US had issued an executive order giving the U.S. Treasury the power to seize U.S. assets of anyone ‘obstructing’ the Yemeni political transition.
