Food Aid Fraud

The World Food Programme and Yemen’s Houthi rebels say they’re close to a deal to lift the UN’s partial suspension of humanitarian aid, Reuters reported Saturday.
 
The June 20 restrictions flowed from the WFP’s concerns that humanitarian aid was being diverted from vulnerable people and used by warring parties as a political tool.
 
Separately, an AP investigation published today reveals the UN is investigating allegations of fraud and theft by more than a dozen UN staffers handling Yemen’s aid.
 
WHO internal auditors are looking into tons of missing fuel and aid, allegations that unqualified people got high-paying jobs, and millions of aid dollars deposited in personal bank accounts.
