Sana'a, NewsYemen, private:

Parliamentary sources in the capital, Sanaa, revealed to NewsYemen, the pressure exerted by the Houthi leader, Ahmed Hamid, appointed by the militia as director of the presidential office, on the presidency of the House of Representatives in Sanaa, to delete the testimony of the Minister of Education in their government Yahya al-Houthi (brother of the militia leader) in the parliament session last Tuesday.

The sources said that Hamed phoned the Speaker of Sanaa's Parliament, Yahya al-Ra'i, and his Houthi deputy, Abdulsalam Hashoul, and obligated them to delete everything contained in Yahya al-Houthi's statement from the session's meeting minutes, and from the format of the session's news, which was distributed to the official media under the control of the Houthis.

 Indeed, Saba news agency, in its version of the Houthis, dropped the speech of al-Houthi's brother, as only a construction paragraph was mentioned in his testimony, even though he revealed information about major corruption operations.

A parliamentary source, who attended the session, told NewsYemen that Yahya al-Houthi, brother of the militia leader Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, confessed to his group's blackmailing of international humanitarian organizations working in Yemen, and preventing the entry of humanitarian aid, claiming that it was damaged.

 Al-Houthi confirmed that the so-called "Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs" is preventing the entry of humanitarian aid into Yemen, under the pretext that it is expired, despite its validity.

He said that the council "blackmails humanitarian organizations financially and directs the media against them."

He explained that this militia entity, which is run by the Houthi leader Abdul Mohsen Al-Tawoos (close to the leader Ahmed Hamed), "prevented the entry of 109,000 bags of legumes on the pretext that they were expired, although the Standards Authority confirmed that it was not aware of this issue."

While he stressed that the bulk of state revenues in the group's control areas do not go to the central bank in Sana'a.

Yahya al-Houthi said that the Salvation Government - where he holds the position of Minister of Education - does not govern, and that ministers cannot perform their duties.

He admitted major corruption operations in customs in the group's controlled areas, and said that he had a report revealing customs corruption, noting that he "paid a bribe to (intelligence) to obtain the report."

Meanwhile, Representative Ahmed Saif Hashid confirmed that the minutes of the Sanaa House of Representatives did not address what was mentioned by the Minister of Education in the Houthi government, during the session.
