Abductees’ Mothers Association’s rallies continue in Aden to demand the Prime Minister, Ma’een Abdulmalek, to uncover the fate of 38 forcibly disappeared persons, and to release 39 arbitrarily arrested individuals.
Yet, the government has never shown any interest in mothers’ demands.
Since 2016, our sons have been illegally abducted from their homes and workplaces, and been forcibly disappeared.
Since then, we have 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.
We, abductees’ mothers, condemn the official silence and taking no actions regarding our sons’ case. We hold the government responsible for uncovering the fate of the forcibly disappeared, and granting them their rights.
We, also, demand immediately look into the cases of the arbitrarily arrested individuals held at Be’er Ahmed Prison, whose trials and legal processes had been stopped.
