What rights does it give the some of the local companies in Yemen to pack Tuna in Hadramout and then erase it from their brand label when exporting or distributing locally? Why erase 'Hadramout'? Where is the trade commission on this subject? As Hadramis, we feel we are ripped off our rights in recognizing our land's contributions. These brands are renamed to 'Saba' and others. Please restore our rights and give the credit to the land where this tuna is produced.
