Abductees Mothers Association meets with Human Rights official at the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.

The head of Abductees’ Mothers Association, Amat Alsalam Al-Hajj, met with the Human Rights official at the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Badr Farouk, in the temporary capital, Aden.

Al-Hajj raised the issue of the kidnapped, detained, and forcibly disappeared individuals to the official, discussing the serious violations they face by the warring parties in Yemen.

She also discussed the conditions of prisons that are not subject to monitoring or allowed to receive human rights visits. The abductees suffer from physical and psychological torture, deprivation of medical care, and the basic rights guaranteed by the law for prisoners inside the prisons, which should be provided by the prison administrations.

In addition, she discussed the suffering of the families of the victims, where often the head of the household is the one who is abducted, causing them psychological and financial crises amid the deteriorating economic conditions in the country.

Al-Hajj emphasized the importance of cooperation and coordination between Abductees’ Mothers Association and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to achieve positive results that contribute to the release of abductees and alleviate the suffering of their families.

The association strives, through all its efforts and activities, to amplify the voices of the victims and urge all parties to work diligently towards the comprehensive and complete release of all the kidnapped individuals.
