Houthi regulations of media a civilizational regression, says info minister
[20/10/2017 07:36]
RIYADH-SABA
Minister of Information Muammar al-Eryani has condemned the Houthi militias' new regulations for electronic media publications calling it "a civilizational regression."

Further to the atrocities of killing, abducting and persecuting journalists, the couper militias controlling the capital Sana'a have issued new regulations that restrict press freedom and expose journalists' lives to danger.

He said: "The measures that the coupers took … are meant to cover up their corruption and atrocities and suppress mounting public resentment of their racial policy that has torn apart the social fabric and exposed the country's unity and stability to danger."

The regulations, the minister said, "reveal the coupers' absolute follow and imitation of the Iranian policies; the Iranian regime had taken similar measures to block media content and cut the flow of information in the age of open space that transformed the world to a global village."

He said, "It constitutes a civilization regression and reminds (us) of the dark ages that Yemen went through before the 26th September Revolution (of 1962)."

He called on the UN Special Envoy to Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh to "firmly intervene to protect freedom of expression" and more importantly the imprisoned journalists in the radical militias jails against atrocities.
