New government demands for UN and US envoys


Muammar Al-Eryani, Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism, called on the UN and US envoys, human rights organizations and the protection of journalists to carry out their legal, humanitarian and moral responsibilities, and to put pressure on the Houthi terrorist militia to abolish the death sentences against journalists, release them unconditionally, and end their tragedy and the suffering of their families.

Al-Eryani said, “The International Day Against the Death Penalty is an occasion to remind four journalists who were kidnapped and forcibly disappeared by the Iranian-backed Houthi militia, who practiced the worst forms of psychological and physical torture against them, and issued death orders against them in formal trials on trumped-up charges against the background of their political views and positions.”

Muammar Al-Eryani explained in a statement to the Yemeni News Agency (Saba) that this anniversary comes days after the crime of mass murder carried out by the terrorist Houthi militia against nine civilians from Al-Hodeidah Governorate, including a child, after years of enforced disappearance and brutal torture, and subjecting them to a mock trial in which they were deprived One of their most basic rights, in the initiation of mass killings.

Al-Eryani also called on the international community to pressure the terrorist Houthi militia to stop using the judiciary under its control as a tool to settle its political scores and kill opponents of its coup project, in flagrant violation of international laws and covenants, foremost of which is the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
