Al-Murtadha: Prisoner Exchange Process to Begin on Friday

News - Yemen: The head of National Committee for Prisoners' Affairs, Abdulqadir Al-Murtadha, confirmed that he had received a letter on Wednesday from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) that the prisoner exchange process would start on Friday.

"After all parties announced their readiness to implement the agreed exchange deal, we were informed by the ICRC that they will start implementation on Friday," he said.

On March 20, Al-Murtadha announced that an agreement had been reached to swap 706 of Yemeni prisoners in prisons of the US-Saudi aggression, in exchange for 181 prisoners of the aggression, including Saudis and Sudanese.

The implementation of the deal was scheduled to start on the 19th of Ramadan, and it was delayed until the 23rd of Ramadan, due to the claim of the Saudi-backed parties in Marib that it was not ready.

On Saturday, Al-Murtadha confirmed that the ICRC had informed the committee of postponing the implementation of the exchange deal due to the lack of readiness of the Saudi-backed parties in Marib.

He explained in a tweet that "what is happening is a clear obstruction of the agreement and a renunciation of commitment, calling on the United Nations to pressure the parties to the aggression to stop these irresponsible and inhumane practices."
