Activists condemn UNHRC overlooking of Houthi crimes
More human rights activists and journalists have joined the voice of condemnations to the recent report on abuses in Yemen issued by the Group of Eminent Experts on Yemen established by the Human Rights Council.
In a seminar they held in Marib province on Saturday the activists said the report which blamed the government and the Arab Coalition for civilian casualties overlooked the fact that the Houthis are guilty of the most appalling and deliberate abusesand crimes taking place for more than three years now.
Amat al-Salam the chairwoman of the League of the Mothers of the Abducted people in rebel militia's jails said the UNHRC experts ignored the militia's practices of abductingthose who oppose them and subjecting them to all forms of physical and psychological torture.
She said the League "has documented the death of 112 people abducted and forcibly disappeared by the Houthis in the militia's jails in six Yemeni provincesover the years 2016-2017."
She added that the militia subjected "960 people in abduction and enforced disappearance to torture in their detention places."
