Taiz abductees mothers condemn transferring their sons to Central Security Base in Sana a

Abductees’ Mothers Association in Taiz condemned the actions Houthi armed group carried out as they transferred 18 abductees from Alsaleh Prison in Taiz to Central Security Base in Sana’a, on July 28th, 2020, claiming to release them in prisoners swap deals. Yet, Houthis had neither released them, nor let their relatives visit them in order to check up on them.

This morning in its rally, Abductees’ Mothers Association stated that the transfer to a military base and the false promises of release were taking place as the memorial of bombing Community College Prison in Dhamar, which resulted in the death of 51 abductees from Taiz, came closer doubling mothers’ worries as they were aware that Central Security Base had been repeatedly targeted by coalition air force.

The rally statement held Houthi armed group responsible for the lives and safety of abductees and forcibly disappeared persons held at Central Security in Sana’a, and demanded the United Nations and its Special Envoy to immediately take the necessary actions to release them unconditionally, as they had been placed in grave danger since they suffered from different chronic diseases, starving, and medical negligence.
