June 12 2000

Captain Saleh Seif Assaf, a Jordanian national, whose trading ship was destroyed during the civil war has appealed for payment of compensation for his loss. He said that his ship was destroyed by the then southern forces and that he and his son were imprisoned. Mr. Assaf and his son were released after the northern forces entered Aden.
He estimated the loss at US$ 3 million. He hopes that his case will be considered by the Yemeni officials.
