Situation in Yemen Update: 14th April 2015
The UK Club is continuing to monitor the situation in Yemen. The Club's correspondent, GAC, reports their office in Aden has been taken over by Houthi rebels and is no longer operational.
It is further reported that all ports are now closed and Saudi led coalition forces have received authority from the Yemeni Government to stop and inspect all ships prior to calling at Yemen. The Club is aware that a number of ships have been detained while waiting for permission from coalition forces to continue. The situation remains unstable and it is unclear whether the coalition forces will allow ships to proceed to port even after the inspection is completed. Members are advised to contact the Club with any questions about their contractual responsibilities.
The Club has compiled a list of FAQs and practical guidance for Members in relation to contractual issues on the ongoing conflict in Yemen.
