Sanaa Congress party  announces boycott of Houthis in protest against release of five February revolution youth


The General People's Congress (GPC), allied with the Houthis in Sanaa, announced Sunday that it was boycotting all the work of the so-called Supreme Political Council, which it brings together with the Houthis, the internationally unrecognized government, the House of Representatives and the Shura Council.

This came during a meeting of the general committee of the party in Sanaa, chaired by Sadiq Amin Aburas, according to the party's website.

The committee expressed its strong condemnation of "the sudden release of the accused associated with the Yemeni Reform Rally for the crime of bombing the Mosque of The Presidential House."

The committee added that the case "is a terrorist case pending before the judiciary and the accused have nothing to do with prisoners of war".

"In response, the General People's Congress approved a boycott of the work and output of the Political Council, the House of Representatives, the Council of Ministers and the Shura Council," the committee said.

On Thursday evening, the Houthis released five revolutionary youth who had been detained for more than eight years, accused by the Saleh regime of participating in the al-Nahdin Mosque bombing that injured Saleh and killed a number of his bodyguards and members of his advisors.

The Congress Party in Sana'a has a deep alliance with the armed Houthi militia, which killed the party's president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, in December 2017.
