National Report - 2006
[The Yemeni Government] has promulgated legislation and laws to combat illicit trade in small arms and light weapons.
It has enacted Act No. 40 of 1992, which is the basic framework for addressing arms issues. But out of the Government 's recognition of the importance of developing this Act to encompass all dimensions and aspects, it has also submitted a new draft law to Parliament which will be debated after the upcoming parliamentary elections.
It should be noted that Yemeni law authorizes the State alone, through its official agencies, to engage in arms-importing operations in response to basic needs for the purpose of maintaining security and calm in society. Private persons are prohibited from importing them.
