“AMA has also received several reports and calls from Aden where abductees’ mothers suffer greatly with no help for their hard-searching journey looking for their sons held by Saudi-led coalition supported-military units” the report says.
The report also revealed that AMA received handwritten letters secretly leaked by victims in which they described forms of torture they were subjected to.
“We included photos of some letters that we received from abductees’ families,” it added. Testimonies by some abductees about torture done against their fellows or testimonies narrated by families they heard from their relatives who were enforcedly disappeared or were held in detention for long period”.
“ AMA organized hearing sessions for several released abductees who spoke to the media about what they were subjected to. This activity is part of what the association is doing to expose abduction, disappearance and torture.”
