Ministry of Human Rights has called upon journalists, media outlets and other relevant bodies for positive activation with the campaign organized by Minister of Human Rights in Europe and Egypt to denounce Houthi-Saleh militias' violations against journalists and death verdict against journalist Yahya al-Jubaihi.
"Houthi-Saleh militias have caused huge damage on journalism and journalist after seizing the state's institutions on September 21, 2014," said the ministry in a release issued Wednesday on the occasion of World Press Freedom Day.
Many private and political institutions have been shut down, dozens have been fired from their jobs because of sectarian practices, some left their homeland fearing of being killed and 18 journalists are in Houthi detention cells without accusations but conveying the truth and expressing their opinion, said the release.
The ministry noted that 23 journalists have been killed since 2011 now and suffering of journalists are still prevailing over stopping salaries, displacement, continuous threats and systematic instigation against them by militia leaders.
"Journalists are celebrating across the world on World Press Freedom Day marking the Third of July every year while Yemeni journalists are living under the darkest and miserable experiences under apartheid militias adopted violence as only approach to target them and arrest them to hide truth and pardon criminals," the release went on.
The ministry expressed its serious concern on lives of kidnapped journalists in militias' cells and expressed regret over deterioration of health of some journalists, calling the UN for imminent interference to release them.
The ministry also demanded all international organizations to put more pressure on Houthi-Saleh's militias to release prisoners of conscience.
