 Member of the Presidency of the Southern Transitional Council (STC), Vice-President of the National Assembly for Control and Inspection, Mr. Lufti Shatara highly praised the key role played by the governor of Aden, Ahmed Hamed Lamlas in the fight against corruption in the capital.

"No governor has dared since 1994 to refer officials of state institutions in the city to the Public Funds and Judiciary Prosecution Office as the STC's general secretary and governor of Aden, Lamlas did." Shatara tweeted on Friday.

"Those courageous steps were taken after the injustice of corrupt officials exceeded all the limits," he said, calling on the people of Aden to stand by Lamlas to cleanse the state institutions before beginning the development process.

Ahmed Lamlas arrived at the end of last August in the southern capital, Aden as its governor. His appointment was part of the Riyadh Agreement between the Yemeni government and the STC.

Recently, the governor of Aden has given his orders to suspend a number of high-ranking officials along with their administrative staffs from their work over negligence and corruption-related matters.

Shatara noted that "Aden as a model under the STC's rule provides a model to be followed and puts in place a foundation for running the Southern State."

Last September, Shatara said "the process of change made by the governor of Aden, Ahmed Lamlas would not end with sacking the directors of districts, but rather with the realignment of administration, halting the chaos made by influential politicians and improving services with the participation of Aden's dignitaries and qualified persons."
