Official: Houthis admits the presence of 2,000 civilians in their prisons and deny 6,000


The al-Houthi group acknowledged the presence of 2,000 civilians in its jails and denied 6,000 others, said Majid Fadhael, a member of the government team in the release of prisoners and abductees committee.

The upcoming Amman meeting will determine the fate of more than 16,000 captives, abductees and missing persons, including 2,000 who have been recognized by the Houthis, and the remaining number will be discussed, said Saudi Arabia's Okaz newspaper quoting the undersecretary of the Ministry of Human Rights.

"On Tuesday and Wednesday, the names that have been denied by the militia will be discussed and we will provide compelling evidence that they are still in Houthi jails," he said.

He pointed out that the names submitted by the Government of more than 9,000 abductees were all civilians, and that the abductees were missing and forcibly hidden.
