Documents revealed that Anwar Zamam, nephew of Mohamed Mansour Zamam, governor of Central Bank of Yemen, was appointed in an invented diplomatic position titled as “assistant of commercial affairs attaché for customs affairs” in the embassy of Yemen in Cairo – Egypt.
This appointment document is part of corruption of employing relatives and close friends of Yemeni influential persons in governmental positions regardless their qualification or right in appointment.
According a diplomatic source, this position does not exist in the administrative structure. The same source expressed his astonishment of the decision as the commercial affairs attaché in Cairo is barely unemployed and all his job is to attend the meetings of Economic Union Council of the Arab League in addition to protocol works.
Appointment decision, described as scandal by observers, holds the signatures of prime minister Ahmed Ben Daghar, Mohamed Abd Al-Wahed Al-Maitami, minister of industry and commerce, and Khaled Al-Yamani, minister of foreign affairs.
