Rare video showing Yemen police (Amn Merkezi-Central Security) taking a bribe of 200 YR after asking for a license for the load on a truck, the truck driver protested he did not need a license and understood that the officer only wanted money. After giving the money, he drove off without problem, but if he refused he would have been sent to the vehicle pound.
Corruption is major in Yemen, this is normal and not the exception. It occurs even in all government offices like this. Which is why Yemen ‘s goverment has failed. The Amn Merkezi is run by a family member of the President Ali Abdullah Saleh and the regime unfortunately receives much money from the USA in aid to the police and army to fight terrorism which it is known to divert for its own uses and corruption. The president’s family, from humble background, have become very rich with billions stashed in accounts and business and land, they have a monopoly on Yemen which they treat as a private business rather than a state with inhabitants. And of course in this atmosphere, who is Ali Abdullah Saleh to lecture this little police man about corruption? That is how Ali has made Yemen corrupt.
