Representatives of Abductees’ Mothers Association visited, today, Abdulaziz Jubari, the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, who positively arranged the meeting and took notes of their case. The association demanded, in a letter presented to the Deputy Speaker, the House of Representatives to take up the case of abductees and forcibly disappeared and arbitrarily arrested persons.
The letter called the House of Representatives to form a committee to investigate the cases of abduction, arrest, and torture, and to work alongside the other authorities to bring the perpetrators to justice.
Mothers demanded the House of Representatives to issue a law the criminalizes forced disappearance, to ratify the international anti-forced disappearance conventions, and to intensify the punishment of the perpetrators of torture crimes.
Mothers’ letter highlighted the importance of working to unconditionally release all abductees and forcibly disappeared and arbitrarily arrested persons, supporting the abductees’ case in international sessions and seminars, and to step up the pressure, locally, to release all abductees from all prisons in Yemen
