His family never heard from him until the news of his death reached them from a released abductee. His body was kept at Dhamar Hospital’s morgue for more than a year.

                  40 arbitrarily arrested individuals and 43 forcibly disappeared persons are still held prisoners at Security Belt prisons in Aden. The abductees live under tragic conditions where they lack the basic medical services and minimum humanitarian needs, such as ventilation and clean water. Moreover, their medical conditions have worsened with the extreme heatwave and power blackouts that last as long as 16 hours a day, as well as the outbreak of COVID-19 and skin

                    In Alhudaydah, which is witnessing scorching temperatures reaching 50°C amidst the global heat wave, our abducted sons are facing unbearable conditions at prisons and detention centers which lack the most basic needs, such as ventilation and water. Thus, their medical conditions worsen, especially those suffering asthma and shortness of breath, and contagious skin diseases spread. Abductees’ Mothers Association has documented the imprisonment of 100

                      While freedom has become a granted right around the globe, Yemenis are still suffering, especially our abducted, forcibly disappeared, and arbitrarily arrested sons, who are subjected to brutal torture leading to the death of many of them. From the beginning of 2020 until the middle of 2021, Abductees’ Mothers Association has documented many cases of physical torture abductees and detainees were subjected to in order to confess to the accusations faced

                         As the regional efforts, as well as of the United Nations’, continue to progress in order to end the war and build peace in our country, the case of abductees and arbitrarily arrested and forcibly disappeared persons is being excluded from all humanitarian agenda which leads to prolonging and increasing the suffering of our sons and their families.  On October 15th and 16th, 2020, Yemeni parties released hundreds of abductees as an implementation

                          Many years have passed by while abductees are still detained. Their suffering has doubled and their case has gone cold. Thus, civilian freedom has become a political game.  According to the cases documented by Abductees’ Mothers Association, Houthi armed group still detains 123 civilians and forced 31 others into disappearance. The group completely refuses to include these civilians in the negotiation lists for prisoners’ swap, despite local and

                            Days, months, and years have passed while our sons are still forcibly disappeared. We have no clue of their conditions and our fears for their lives have doubled with the spread of COVID-19. Another group of our sons have spent three years and a half unlawfully detained at Be’er Ahmed Prison due to the constant prolonging of legal processes, which, in turn, leads to the extension of detention periods.  We were optimistic with the capability of the new

Their families’ conditions have worsened while there is no close hope to have their stolen freedom back.  At Abductees’ Mothers Association, we have assembled here by the office of UN’s Special Envoy to condemn the disregard of Yemeni parties for the suffering of 624 abductees and forcibly disappeared

                                As the whole world combats COVID-19 by releasing all prisoners and detainees, since the conditions at prisons dangerously accelerate the spread of the virus, the warring parties in Yemen continue to abduct journalists and issue execution judgement upon them while allowing no defence for their cases at all.  On April 11th, 2020, Houthi armed group issued a judgement of executing four abductees after more than five years of detention. Armed Houthi officers had

She was falsely tied to a case of other models and actors. In his statement to the association, the victim’s legal consultant, Khaled Mohammed Al-Kamal, said that he and her family were not
