What is the truth about the closure of the “YOU” company in Aden and the reason for the demands to close it quickly

Activists on social media launched a sharp attack on the new telecom company, which came as an alternative to MTN.

Activists demanded that the local authorities and security services in Aden quickly close the offices of the “U” Telecom Communications Company and investigate its management.

The activists considered that the company’s development of its systems and its introduction of devices, equipment and chips without supervision and without knowing the nature of these devices is a security breach of the security services and a violation of the rules and regulations governing the work of mobile phone companies.

Some described the company as illegal, and the Ministry of Communications had previously issued several statements warning against dealing with the company, considering that its existence is illegal and outside the framework of laws and regulations.

It is noteworthy that the “YOU” company is owned by the leader of the Houthi group, Muhammad Abdul Salam, and is based in Sanaa, and is managed from there.

The activists pointed out that the Houthis had bought the company and changed its name from MTN to You, which is an abbreviated name (the Yemeni Omani Company), on the pretext that an Omani company called Zumurud was the one who purchased the company’s assets, and it is an attempt, to circumvent, cover up and deceive the people to be able to work in the liberated areas to serve the Houthi agenda with the aim of Espionage and surveillance for security, military, intelligence, and economic purposes by making money and exploiting it in the group’s war effort, “according to the activists’ description.”

The activists appealed to the local authorities and security services to move quickly and take the necessary measures.
