Houthi court sentences two employees of political security (intelligence) to death for leaking information


A court under the Houthis' group in Sana'a today sentenced two employees of the Political Security Service to death for leaking information to the "states of aggression."

The lawyer and human rights activist Abdul Rahman Berman said that a Houthi court has sentenced two employees of the Secretariat of the Political Security Service in Sana'a to death.

Berman said in a tweet that the trial was held in a secret session held at the political security building in Sana'a, without the presence of the defendants' lawyers.

He said that Farouk Abdullah al-Himyari and Tariq Mohammed al-Sufi, employees of the Political Security Secretariat, were sentenced to death by a Houthi court for passing on information to the aggression, referring to the Saudi-led coalition in support of the (recognized) Yemeni government.

According to human rights sources, the court that issued the verdict is the specialized criminal court of first instance, which in early July sentenced 30 abductees of political activists belonging to the Islah party to death.
