In Aden, Abductees’ Mothers Association condemned the official silence and taking no actions regarding the case of abductees and forcibly disappeared persons. 

 

In their rally this morning nearby Ma’asheeq Presidential Palace, mothers held the government responsible for uncovering the fate of the forcibly disappeared, and granting them their rights.

 

They, also, demanded to immediately look into the cases of the arbitrarily arrested individuals held at Be’er Ahmed Prison, whose trials and legal processes had been stopped.

 

The rally statement demanded the government, head by the Prime Minister, Ma’een Abdulmalek, to uncover the fate of 38 forcibly disappeared persons, and to release 39 arbitrarily arrested individuals.

 

Those individuals were illegally arrested at their homes and workplaces in 2016, and have been forcibly disappeared ever since.

Their families had only received rumours and unconfirmed news implying that they had been tortured to death, or transferred to secret detention centres, inside or outside the country.
