Female relatives renew call for release of detainees

Alsahwa Net- The Female Relatives to illegal detainees, known as the Abductees’ Mothers Association, demanded on Thursday release of all abductees, enforced disappeared people, and arbitrary detainees with no condition.

The association members voiced their demands during a sit-in they held on the same day before the UN Human Rights Commission Representative’s Office in Sana’a.

They said that international conventions on abductees, forcibly disappeared people and illegal detainees have not been implemented amid intentional extension of illegal detention for no valid reason.

Female participants of the sit-in demanded release of all arbitrary detainees who were caught because of their belief, opinion or political belongings.

The association members called again on bringing perpetrators of abduction and arbitrary arrests to justice, shutting down all informal and secret detention facilities where human rights of the inmate are being infringed and victims are deprived of their basic needs.

They called on removing all inter-governorates checkpoints that exercise arbitrary arrests and illegal detentions against women, men and children.

The illegal detainees and their relatives continue suffering despite the signing of the Sweden-based UN-sponsored agreement by the government and the Houthis late 2018.

In part, the agreement states exchange of prisoners and detainees.

The Houthis who hold thousands of civilians as captives have broken their word several times on release of the detainees.

The association said in a statement that no hope looms towards implementation of the Stockholm agreement on the part of the detainees.

In this respect, the southern rebels known as the Southern Transitional Council (STC) in Aden who hold also scores of civilians as captives have showed no mercy to the suffering of the illegal detainees.

The STC and the government signed Al-Riyadh agreement last November to end rebellion in Aden and release illegal detainees. However, the association said that both agreements failed so far to set detainees free in Sana'a and Aden.

The female members held the UN Security Council (UNSC) accountable to safety of their relatives and obligating abductors to implement signed agreements that the UN sponsored their signing.

The female members said that they have been waiting for too long time for the return of their detained relatives.
