In response to misleading media statements issued by some Yemeni news channels and websites talking deceptively about the Shabwany Elites and the southern transitional council of Maifaa as seizing the headquarters of the Reform Party in Maifaa and robbing its contents, we assure that the above-mentioned building was never a headquarter for the Reform party as it belongs to the local authority. The building was established in 1984 under the label of “Gust House” and it is abandoned for years. It was given to the southern transitional council. The building needs restoration and maintenance works, and it was empty of any contents to be robbed. All citizens of Maifaa directorate know these facts well.
