YJS: 2017 is the most aggressive against Yemeni journalists
[04/04/2017 04:53]
Aden (Saba)
The Yemeni Journalists Syndicate (YJS) has affirmed that 2017 is the most violent and aggressive year against journalists, pointing out that rising violations have further complicated the media environment in which the Yemeni journalists work.

YJS said in a report issued Tuesday on violations committed against press freedoms during the first half of 2017, that it registered 47 cases of violations made against journalists and media companies during the past three months, reiterating that the violations included abduction, detentions, seizure and others.

The report, which the Yemeni News Agency (Saba) obtained a copy of it, cited that 18 out of 19 Yemeni journalists are detained by the Houthi-Saleh militias and live in sever conditions inside the Political Security's prison in Sana'a.

It spelt out that the journalists are deprived of treatment, indicating that one journalist is held by al-Qaeda in Hadhramout.

YJS also registered five cases of threats, five cases of attempted murder, six cases of investigations and trials, four cases of assaults, three cases of confiscating properties of journalists, four cases of suspensions and deprivation of having salaries paid.

The report noted that the Houthi-Saleh militias committed 29 violations, 62%, signaling out that they also included five cases of threats, six cases of investigations and trials and three cases of hacking news websites.

According to the report, two cases of torture against journalists held by the Houthi-Saleh militias; Tawfeeq al-Mansouri and Tayseer al-Samae, were also documented.

The journalists detained in the Political Security's prison are actually facing harsh conditions of detentions, YJS added in its report.
