Yemen's President Office on Wednesday instructed the Internationally-recognized government to implement its decisions aimed at ending the insecurity seen by the Yemeni southeastern governorate of Hadhramout.
Referring to its prior decree, the Office sent a letter to Premier Maeen Abdulmalek asking for phased enlistment and training of 3,000 people from Hadhramout to provide its districts' security bodies with more personnel.
The presidential instructions come two days before the expiry of a 20-day time limit given by Hadhramout tribes on 6 June for the government to assign provincial security to locals to end insecurity there, otherwise the tribes would take control of the governorate and its wealth.
In his visit to Hadhramout in December 2016, President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi decreed the 3,000-men recruitment to reactivate security centers at district level, but the decree has yet to be fulfilled.
In its letter, Hadi's Office also ordered the government to budget for "applying the security plan sent by Hadhramout local authority to interior ministry in order to re-prepare security bodies" there.
Under the presidential orders, 300 million rials (US$ 410,000) would be disbursed in contribution to the application of the emergency plan.
For years now, Hadhramout Valley and Desert districts has experienced insecurity and frequent assassinations targeting civil and military officials and civilians.
