YCMHRV director says human rights in Yemen entered sensitive stage

The director of the Yemen Coalition for Monitoring Human Rights Violations (YCMHRV) Mutahar al-Budheiji said "the human rights situation in Yemen has entered a very sensitive and complex stage."

 

In a presentation in a seminar held on the sidelines of the 37th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva on Friday he said that the ongoing years long conflict has been characterized by violence and atrocities against civilians.

He said that YCMHRV has documented the atrocities that occurred from January 1 to December 31, 2017 in 20 Yemeni provinces.

 

That violence caused "the killing of 2260 people and injuring of 2780 others."


He said that last year the then allied "Houthi-Saleh militias killed 1324 persons and injured 2295 others."  

 

The YCMHRV verified dozens of incidents of enforced disappearances, kidnapping, arbitrary detention and tortures, which led to the death of a number of detainees.

He called on the UN Security Council to pressure on the Houthi militia to implement the Council's resolutions on Yemen and to respect the principles of international humanitarian law and human rights conventions.
