STC demands Yemen government he overthrown to pay salaries of separatist forces
The so-called UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council STC demanded on Monday that the legitimate government pay the salaries of its forces that overthrown the same government, accusing it of refraining from paying the salaries of those forces.
The transitional said in a statement that the government represented by the Central Bank in Aden insisted that the salaries of southern forces for five months should not be paid.
It is striking that the forces that the transitional demands to pay their salaries are the forces that led the coup against legitimacy and drove it out of Aden last August.
The statement added that “this intransigence is a disgraceful and inhuman behavior.”
The transitional expressed regret that the separation forces had resorted to setting up tents and sit-in in front of the gate of the coalition camp, “but that the consciences of the Yemeni government and its representative (the central bank in Aden) did not move and the government still refuses to pay their salaries”.
