Government condemns abductees death by torture in Houthis prisons

The Yemeni government condemned on Thursday torturing abductees in the Houthis prisons which led to the killing of dozens of them.


The Yemeni news agency Saba quoted the Human Rights Ministry statement as saying that the Houthis militia committed the most heinous crimes and violations against abductees, in which the last crime of torture to death was committed against the detainee Ahmed Saleh Hussein al Wahashi, from Mothqain village in al Baydah province, who was arrested on 15 October.


The statement added that there were hundreds of victims who were tortured to death in the Houthis prisons. Al Wahashi is a recent incident as he was taken by the Houthis militia with his nephew, who is still being held at Habra prison in Sana'a, where the Houthis militia committed all kinds of torture that broke his spine, killing him on October 28.



The ministry blamed the Houthis-Saleh forces for killing the abductees, demanding the United Nations, the Security Council and international organizations to put pressure on the Houthis to respect the laws and rights of the abductees, as well as called for the prompt release of all detainees and stop assaulting or torturing them.
