Geneva – Houthi rebel groups are detaining captives in shocking conditions, finds the Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor and the Association of Abductees’ Mothers in Yemen. Human rights violations are rampant and the overcrowded living conditions are particularly dangerous in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The report, titled, “Hanish Prison: the Houthi ‘Dungeon’,” profiles violations against two Yemeni civilians as examples. The two were detained in Hanish Prison without charge, then subjected to physical and psychological torture, deprived of food and medicine and denied visits by family members—severe infractions of international law conventions.
The report provides the names and nicknames of the prison officials and Houthi investigators.
