The former UN special envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths, has close links to the vice-president of a private energy group which has had significant financial interests in the oil sectors of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, Declassified can reveal.
The Saudi and UAE regimes are belligerents in the Yemen conflict, together leading the devastating air war in the country which has killed thousands of people since it began in 2015. Over 25000 bombing missions have been flown by the UK-backed coalition, mainly by Saudi warplanes. In his position as UN envoy, Griffiths had access to high-level officials in both regimes.
Declassified has revealed that Inter Mediate, a company Griffiths co-founded in 2011 and which he still advises, “works closely” with Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service (SIS, better known as MI6), which has been active in the Yemen war.
Declassified also recently revealed that the UK loaned a military officer to Griffiths while he was UN envoy for Yemen.
