Abductees Mothers Association Rally Statement in Taiz

Abductees’ Mothers Association rallies today in Taiz to condemns the death sentence of 30 abductees which was issued by Supreme Criminal Court, which lacks jurisdiction, headed by Houthi-appointed judge, Abdu Rajeh, after a groundless two-year trial.

In this rally, we, at Abductees’ Mothers Association, demand saving the 30 civilian abductees and all other abductees, and their immediate and unconditional release as they are innocent civilians who were abducted from homes and workplaces with no legal justification, were forcibly hidden for months, and were systematically tortured physically and psychologically.

We hold the international community, headed by the UN, responsible for prolonging our sons’ suffering for years. We also hold Houthi armed group responsible for the lives and safety of all abductees and forcibly hidden detainees.
