Almotamar.net - The parliament endorsed on Saturday a law granting president Ali Abdullah Saleh total immunity from legal and judicial prosecution.
This law also applies to the civil, military, and security officials, who were involved with the president in operations based on political motives rather than terrorist acts.
In addition, the parliament endorsed the recommendation for Vice President Abdo Rabbo Mansour Hadi to be the consensual and sole candidate for the early presidential elections to be held on 21 February.
The adopted law was voted on in the presence of the government and all members of the parliament.
Twelve terrorists, mostly Saudi nationals, carried out Thursday massive and coordinated attack on the Defense Ministry Complex that claimed the lives of 56 people and injured over 215 others, a special Yemeni probe revealed on Friday.
An official security source at the Yemeni Interior Ministry has confirmed the arrest of the attacker Hisham Mohammed Ahmed Asim who has on Wednesday morning opened fire on a French citizen working in the Austrian OMV Company in the capital Sana’a.
