Mohammed Ali Al-Houthi called on his Twitter followers to name officials who own properties that can be sold
Houthi leader wants to sell homes of exiled opposition leaders to pay public salaries
Senior Houthi leader Mohammed Ali Al-Houthi has called for new legislation allowing the sale of the homes of state leaders who live abroad, as a way to pay for the salaries of civil servants.
"Those who looted the country, and the people who’ve become mercenaries, were part of the salary problem," he said in a tweet.
"I propose the House of Representatives put in place a law that allows the sale of their homes to fund the payment of (civil servants) salaries to employees starting with Hadi and his deputy to the last official," he said in the tweet.
Al-Houthi called on followers to name officials who own properties that can be sold.
Through its courts, the Houthis have been prosecuting government officials and Yemeni army leaders, a move that human rights activists say is aimed at legalizing Houhi ownership of their properties.
