Houthi-controlled prosecutor summons 16 journalists working for Al-Thawra Press Foundation in Sana'a


The Houthis Attorney General's Office in Sana'a, summoned a number of journalists and staff at al-Thawra Press Foundation to appear on Tuesday to hear their statements in a complaint against them.

According to the summons, 16 journalists and employees of the Al-Thawra Press Foundation are forced to come to the prosecution tomorrow to investigate a complaint filed against them.

The order did not indicate the type of complaint and the party that filed it, but Houthi leaders have previously promised to prosecute their opponents in the institution, accusing a number of its employees and journalists of conspiring to kill and communicate with the outside, and criticizing their authorities in Sana'a.

Leaders of the Houthi group accuse a number of journalists and employees of the foundation of criminal and financial crimes, among other defendants a number of names in the order.

Al-Houthi refuses to pay salaries to employees of the Revolutionary Foundation, but forces them to work free of charge.

The group had previously broken up protests by the staff members demanding their dues by force and the group resorted to fabricating malicious accusations and complaints to terrorize the employees of the institution and prevent them from claiming their financial rights.

It should be noted that the administration of the Houthi-designated Revolutionary Foundation looted food aid for the foundation's staff from a UN organization, and stole it continuously for several months, without the staff and the organization having knowledge of the dialects receiving it.
