The Yemeni Petroleum Company (YPC) in Sana’a has on Wednesday revealed new cases of looting of Yemeni oil wealth, alongside the continuation of piracy on oil derivatives ships paid for.
The official spokesman for YPC, Essam Al-Mutawakel, said in a press statement that the ship Helen arrived on Tuesday at Radhom port in Shabwah province, carrying one million barrels of crude oil that is set to be sold for 72 million dollars by the occupation forces, in a new case of looting of the wealth of the Yemeni people.
Al-Mutawakel criticised the silence of the United Nations towards such acts, saying “While the oil derivatives ships are pirated and the oil wealth of the Yemeni people is looted, we do not see any movement from the United Nations.”
A detained gasoline ship arrived two days ago at the port of Hodeidah, the first ship to arrive in the free areas of Yemen since the beginning of 2021. The contents of this ship represent merely 5% of the actual needs for the coming 6 months.
