Abductees Mothers Association statement following international experts committee statement

 With great relief and appreciation, Abductees’ Mothers Association received a copy of international experts’ committee statement in Yemen.

The committee has dedicatedly worked, since its formation, on abduction, arbitrary detention, and forced disappearance cases. It has documented testaments of the victims and their families, and got familiar with detention conditions.

While international experts’ committee calls upon warring parties to release all abductees and political detainees to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19 in Yemen, we hope that their humanitarian calls will be heard and implemented immediately. We call upon international human rights organizations to generate more efforts to release all abductees and forcibly disappeared persons before Covid-19 spreads in Yemen.
