Yemeni Parliament Passes Immunity Law for President Saleh

Yemen’s parliament passed a law granting full immunity from prosecution to President Ali Abdullah Saleh after delaying the vote three times.

Saleh’s aides will receive immunity for “politically motivated” crimes though they can be tried for acts of terrorism, according to the provisions of the law agreed today by the assembly. The parliament also endorsed the presidential nomination of Vice President Abdurabu Mansur Hadi.

A new Yemeni government was sworn in last month after Saleh signed an agreement brokered by the Gulf Cooperation Council to relinquish presidential powers in return for immunity from prosecution. Hadi is running the state temporarily and will transfer power to the opposition party after presidential elections on Feb. 21, according to the agreement.

Saleh plans to travel to the U.S. after visiting Oman and Ethiopia, Sultan al-Barakani, assistant secretary general of the General People’s Congress, said today in an interview. Saleh will return to Yemen for the presidential elections, al-Barakani said.
