Alsahwa Net- The National Organization for Yemeni Journalists (known as Sada) has strongly denounced “atrocious violations” committed by the Houthis against the Yemeni journalists detained in a Houthi prison in Sana’a.
The organization revealed that the Houthis resumed the torture of ten Yemeni journalists in the Political Security Prison in Sana’a.
Sada has held the Houthi Movement responsible for the safety of the journalists, stressing the importance of pursuing the perpetrators in local and international courts.
It further demanded the United Nations to assume its legal and moral responsibility towards the Yemeni journalists and put pressures on the Houthis to release them without conditions.
The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) has condemned the use of Yemeni journalists as bargaining chips in the conflict.
IFJ demanded the release of the abducted journalists by the Houthis in 2010 after the Yemeni Journalists Syndicated issued warnings that the journalists have been tortured.
In a press release, IFJ said that the Houthis have repeatedly broken all international conventions and norms on the treatment of prisoners.
