Supreme Judicial Council: Death sentencing of 30 detainees is illegal

 

Alsahwa Net- The Supreme Judicial Council said on Sunday 14 July 2019 that the death sentence ruled last week by a Houthis-run court in Sana’a against 30 detainees is illegal.

The state-run Saba News Agency reported that judge, Ali Nasser Salem, chairman of the Supreme Judicial Council headed on Sunday a meeting in the temporary capital Aden and discussed the death penalty sentenced by the Houthis-run Specialized Criminal Court against 30 detainees.

It said that the sentence and any thing issued by this court in Sana’a is deemed illegal. It explained that the court in Sana’a has no mandate anymore to issue or hold such trails as the council transferred authority of the court in April 2018 from Sana’a to Marib, which is under the government’s control.

The Houthis-issued death sentence against 30 detainees has received local and international condemnation including the US Department of State, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and Amnesty International.
