Socotra authorities uphold decision to ban Emiratis from entering except by Visa and UAE mobilize the street


The Executive Office of the Socotra Archipelago rejected what it called "the exploitation of some actors operating in Socotra" for humanitarian work in violation of applicable and internationally recognized law and order.

In a statement issued by the office , a copy of which was received by Al-Masdar online , on Tuesday, called on the parties working in Socotra to abide by law and harmony with the local authority in order to achieve the security and stability of the province, praising the implementation of the security agencies of these decisions.

The Executive Office supported all the measures and steps taken by the local authority led by Governor Mahrous in enforcing the law in order to preserve national sovereignty and the interests of the sons of Socotra.

The Executive Office called on citizens not to be dragged behind some inciting calls, which they said were "aimed at the security and stability of social peace, thereby hindering development and disrupting the public interest of Socotra."

Socotra airport security prevented a number of foreigners working on board an Emirati plane, including the Khalifa UAE Foundation in Socotra, from entering the province without an official visa.

Earlier this month, the governor issued directives banning foreigners from entering the island without legal procedures, which Emiratis and their workers did not comply with.

The UAE began to mobilize the street in Socotra against the governor's decisions and called on the pro-transitional council to demonstrate to demand his dismissal, on Wednesday, through calls for the so-called Southern Transitional Council loyal to it.
