Alsahwa Net- Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has called for an immediate release of ten Yemeni journalists detained by the Houthis and the withdrawal of all charges against them.
The rights group said that the journalists are now facing possible execution for allegedly collaborating with Saudi and UAE-led enemy forces.
“After being arbitrarily imprisoned by the Houthis for four years, held in appalling conditions and subjected to torture, these ten journalists could now be executed,” said Sophie Anmuth, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “Their ordeal has dragged on for too long. We call for their immediate and unconditional release.”
“Some of these journalists are suffering from the serious physical after-effects of the torture to which they have been subjected, according to a Yemeni NGO, the Association of Mothers of Detainees. Some were forced to make confession that were filmed. Many of them have also been starved and are in very poor psychological condition.”
