Yemen MPs OK controversial Saleh immunity law
Sana’a: Yemen`s Parliament says it has approved amendments to a sweeping immunity law so that those working under President Ali Abdullah Saleh could be tried on corruption charges.
The amendments announced in a statement released by the Parliament on Saturday would still protect the officials against acts of terrorism and what it termed "political" charges.
The statement says the immunity still covers Saleh completely.
Yemen has been in turmoil for a year, with numerous factions in the country demanding that Saleh resign. In November, he signed a power transfer deal brokered by Yemen`s powerful Gulf neighbours, but he remains in office.
