RIYADH - SABA
Yemen's Information Minister Muammar Al-Eryani has confirmed that the the Iranian-backed Houthi militia's crimes have turned the areas under their control into the largest hotbeds of human trafficking in the world.
In a statement on the International Day for Combating Human Trafficking, he said the Houthi militia's coup and war have undermined the efforts made by the state before 2014 in combating human trafficking in terms of regulations, laws and field procedures.
He said that the militia's "policy of child soldier recruitment, disappearance of women in secret prisons, sexual abuse, enforced waves of internal and external displacements, and high rates of poverty and unemployment, have made the areas under Houthi control the largest hotbeds of human trafficking in the world.
Al-Eryani called on the international community, the United Nations and human rights organizations to resolve the suffering of millions of victims of the Houthi terrorist militia's crimes in human trafficking, and to bring those responsible for these crimes to justice by treating them as "war criminals."
