Abductees Mothers Association rally statement in Aden

 We, at Abductees’ Mothers Association, are here, by coalition headquarters, to express our greatest worries for our abducted sons’ conditions due to the global widespread of Covid-19 while there 38 forcibly disappeared abductees and 52 detainees held at Be’er Ahmed Prison.

We, abductees’ mothers, demand competent authorities, mainly Ministry of Interiors and Public Prosecution, to urgently release arbitrary detainees before the pandemic spreads in prisons and abide by their legal duties towards abductees’ safety.

We demand military and security organizations in Aden to release all forcibly disappeared persons, call upon Arab Coalition in Yemen, headed by Saudi Arabia, to create the needed pressure to uncover the fate of forcibly disappeared abductees and release them in order to protect them from Covid-19 pandemic as they are denied any medical or legal supervision.

We, finally, call upon national and international human rights organizations to generate more efforts to release all abductees and forcibly disappeared persons for the injustice they have suffered is beyond comprehension.
