UNICEF Aid at Private Home
By Mansoor Abdullah
Acting upon information related by the security organ in Hodeida, representatives of the Central Audit and Control Organization and the prosecutor’s office searched the house of an employee at the education office. They found a quantity of food stuffs (150 cartons of cooking oil, & 4 50-kg sacks of beans) supplied by the UNICEF to be distributed free of charge to students in the countryside.
Two more padlocks were used by the investigation committee to lock the place where the food is stored, awaiting the arrival of the absent culprit employee for further investigations. However, the stored food was later taken away without questioning the man.
