Abductees Mothers Association in Ibb Condemns Sentencing 30 Abductees to Death by Houthi Court

We, at Abductees’ Mothers Association in Ibb, condemn and disapprove the void judgement of executing 30 civilian abductees, among of whom are academics and students, who have been held at Houthi prisons and detention centers. Those abductees had suffered from brutal and inhuman torture, physically and psychologically, then tried by a court that lacks jurisdiction.


The Houthi ruling of executing 30 abductees based on invalid charges and lacks legitimacy. It jeopardizes all peace agreements and negotiations. We, abductees’ mothers, call upon the United Nations, Security Council, and human rights organizations to intervene and work for the immediate release of our abducted sons, and we hold Houthi armed group responsible for the lives and safety of our abducted and forcibly hidden sons.
