The National Organization of Yemeni Journalists, Echo, today held an event to publicize the induction guide #kill_envelope on the case of the four journalists (Akram Al-Walidy, Tawfiq Al-Mansoori, Harith Hamid and Abdul-Khaleq Omran), as well as a hearing for the testimonies of released kidnappers about the conditions in which journalists live in Houthi prisons.
The event included shocking testimonies that documented aspects of the severe suffering of journalists and the physical and psychological violations they have been subjected to in the group’s prisons since their arrest in June 2015.
The head of the Sada Organization, Youssef Hazeb, said that the guide includes comprehensive briefings on knowledge, information and events related to the case of the four journalists who were forcibly disappeared by the Houthi group seven years ago, calling for swift action to release them and to ensure that the perpetrators of these violations are held accountable.
The head of the Sada organization added, “The Houthi group has not only committed the crime of arbitrary arrest, but has continued to commit more crimes, serious violations and inhumane practices in a systematic and intentional manner, as they were kept under difficult and harsh conditions that affected them and their families.”
The event included online interventions from released journalists who gave their testimonies and talked about the false accusations that the Houthi group had fabricated against them.
The event was attended by jurists, journalists, media professionals and representatives of civil society organizations.
