Al-Shdadi: The Houthis threatened 30 deputies in the House of Representatives to torture, kill and blow up houses


Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives Mohammed al-Shdadi said on Tuesday that the Houthi militants threatened 30 members of the Council, residing in the capital Sana'a, with torture, killing and bombing their homes, if they monitored any hostile- as they described- the movement of the deputies against them.

In an interview with the Saudi Arabian Middle East newspaper, he said he had received information indicating that the Houthis were preventing deputies in Sanaa from moving after they stormed their homes and threatened to blow them up.

He called for swift UN intervention to protect deputies who enjoy parliamentary immunity from any prosecutions.

He said the council sent a message to the United Nations, and "the message contains all the actions that the militias have carried out in the last few days."

"We are counting on the intervention of special envoy Martin Griffiths, who is visiting Sanaa to pressure the militias to stop their violations and leave freedom for deputies to stay or leave Sanaa, especially since the militias have vowed to blow up their homes and kill them," he said.

"We fear that the militias would carry out executions among the members for their violation," he said.

On the other hand, Al-Shdadi talked about the first session of the Council since the coup, saying that the quorum was completed for the first sessions, and now await the reference from the Presidency of the Republic of Yemen and the forces of the Arab coalition to hold it.

The delay in the meeting was about the creation and securing of the location.
