Al-Thawra newspaper halts publishing
Until this year, the paper had never stopped publishing since September 28, 1962. The paper’s management had failed to pay workers their fees, which led to the current suspension, according to Eyad Al-Mawsimi, a journalist at the paper.
Nabil Haydr, a reporter for Al-Thawra, told the Yemen Times that employee’ salaries had not been paid for three months.
A ministry source told Al-Hale local newspaper that Al-Thawra paper has run into accumulated problems caused by the previous government administration, which left the paper with huge amounts of debt.
In February of this year, operations at the paper were also suspended after armed men affiliated with former president Saleh stormed the paper’s headquarters in Sana’a in protest against the removal of Saleh’s picture from Al-Thawra’s front page.
