Tourists Not Allowed To Leave Hotels After 18:00 Hours [Archives:2000/33/Local News]

August 14 2000

Circulars issued and distributed during last month by various departments of the Local Authority in Seiyun District of Hahdramaut Province urged hotel owners not to allow tourists leave their hotels after 18:00 hours unless heavily guarded, “Al-Wihda” official weekly reported in its latest issue of last Wednesday. The circulars were distributed throughout Wadi Hadhramaut districts.
One of these circulars held hotels management responsible for any consequences, the weekly issued by Al-Thawra Corporation said.
A number of hotel owners and officials in Hadhramaut have expressed resentment towards this decision which defames tourism in our country.
