Prisoner Tortured to Death in Marib
A prisoner loyal to Sana’a Forces was martyred in the prisons of Saudi-sponsored forces in Marib province due to torture, Sana’a-based National Committee for Prisoners’ Affairs said in a statement issued on Sunday.
According to the statement, in the last week, the coalition forces brutally tortured Hamid Hammoud Abu Halfa until he died inside one of their prisons in the province.
The committee explained that during the implementation of an exchange deal last weekend, the Committee was surprised by receiving the prisoner Hamid Hammoud Abu Halfa, a dead body with traces of torture.
It noted that after the examination of the body by the forensic doctor, it was confirmed that the prisoner had been martyred under torture.
The National Committee for Prisoners’ Affairs condemned this heinous crime, blaming the leadership of the Saudi-led coalition and their agents in Marib for moral and legal responsibility.
“The crimes of coalition against prisoners were a natural consequence of the silence of the United Nations and its organizations operating in Yemen,” the statement added.
The statement called on the UN envoy to condemn this crime and put pressure on the forces of Saudi coalition and their loyal forces in Marib to stop these criminal practices against prisoners.
It also called on all local and international organizations to condemn such crimes and prosecute the perpetrators so that they could receive their deterrent punishment.
