His Excellency the Yemenite President Ali Abdullah Saleh,
Sana'a, Republic of Yemen, January 5th, 1997
Subject: Claim for recovering the properties of late Haj Salam Saeed Saleh Abdulla Shalab, which consist of one house located in section F, street No (10) at Crater Aden, three houses in section B , street No. (6) at Al-Sheikh Osman and a piece of land No. (663) at Dar Saa'd (previously Dar Al-Amir).
Your Excellency, we appeal to you to direct the concerned party, who will enable us to recover what has been extorted unjustly and offensively. We are claiming to recover our property, which consist of one house located in section F, street No. (10) at crater under the ownership No. (1671), and three houses at section b, Street No. (6) at Al-Sheikh Osman, under the ownership No. (5191), (5192) and (5195) and the piece of land No. (663) at Dar Saa'd (previously Dar Al-Amir), under the owner No. (H-762). All these properties were owned before by Al Haj Salam Saeed Saleh Abdulla Shalab. We have no doubt that your Excellency will take positive action, which will enable us to recover our rights as soon as possible, because we live in a rented house and our financial conditions do not allow any postponement or delay.
We pray for God to keep you up for enforcement of rights and suppressing the injustice and extend your life.

When I want to Aden Governorate on June 21, 1997, the officials denied receiving any information about our claim and after discussion, waiting, explanation of my purpose etc. They went to the secret archives and brought to me the No. of my file (152). On June 19, 1997, the same situation and the same dialogue were with the officials in regards to the president letter firstly, they denied receiving any papers, but the recognized receiving it on March 22, 1997. I would like to remain that I got the signatures of officials in between guns, securities soldiers, spies, as well as with their translation and taking them out of the previous home land.
During my working for Qatar University and before my immigration to Canada, I had an occasion to meet His Excellency the Chairman of the House of Representative in Doha Qatar, on April 16th , 2000. and I handed him my letter with documents. The letter has been changed, because problems are in increasing.
I am Dr. Engineer, who at present for Qatar University have the honor to submit to your Excellency this memo and pray for God then request your support for the right and its people for cases were submitted years ago to the responsible parties in the state but it was not solved until now and became one of the forgotten, hoping that it will find solution in you hands, with our thanks.
The cases are:
The cases of recovering our extorted houses and Land in Aden (at Al-Sheikh Osman, Crater Aden, and Dar Saa'd (previously Dar-Al-Amir),
the cases of recruitment and the intended postponement,
The Cases of my mother's murder and the robbery of the criminals.

What Happened? Of course, nothing as usual.
I left Qatar to Poland for few days, later to Germany for one month in order to participate in scientific conference, which was held in Hamburg City in 2000 as well as for training. Month later I left Germany to go to Poland to wait for Canadian Permanent residence documents. In December, 2000, I arrived in Canada. and I started struggling in different directions with the past, present and future.
Is Aden really a free Zone? Is Yemen also a real state? Is the governor a governor or something else? Is there any God in Yemen? Who answers this question should get a Noble Prize. I think God is able to answer the questions.
