The Capital West Court in Sanaa is still looking into the case filed against the Al-Wahdawy, mouthpiece of the Nasserite Unionist Party and its chief editor, Mr. Abdul Aziz Sultan for an essay written by Jamal Ahmad Aamer concerning the Yemeni-Saudi relationship. The newspaper was accused of damaging the public interest by publishing false news and offending king Fahd Ben Abdul Aziz. For its part the newspaper has denied all the charges against it regarding them mere excuses to stage a crack down on the freedom of press and opinion.
