Human Rights Ministry Holds US-Saudi Aggression Responsible for Torturing Detainees in Marib

News - Yemen: The Ministry of Human Rights confirmed that it had received a communication from the family of citizen Yassin Mohammed Al-Mutawakel, who was arrested while traveling to the city of Marib to buy a car in early May 2021.

"US-Saudi aggression militia in Marib refuses to release Yassin Al-Mutawakel, along with hundreds of detainees, while it practices various of psychological and physical torture against them," the ministry said in a statement.

The statement confirmed that the administration of the Political Security Prison in Marib punishes those who demand treatment from the detainees and deprives them of exposure to the sun, which caused the spread of skin diseases among them.

The statement pointed out that hundreds of detainees in Political Security prison in Marib, were kidnapped from the roads, and most of them are academics, journalists, students, and those traveling for work and treatment.

It held US-Saudi aggression legally responsible for the lives of the detained prisoners and the violations and torture they are subjected to.

The statement of the Ministry of Human Rights called on the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Humanitarian Coordinator to visit the Political Security prison in Marib, meet the detainees and seek their release.

The scope of secret prisons has expanded throughout the occupied governorates from the western coast to Al-Mahrah and the archipelago of Socotra Island, to reflect the brutality of the Saudi and Emirati regimes  and reveal the policy of subjugating society to the authorities with oppression and abuse.

Despite local and international condemnations for the crimes of physical and psychological torture, hundreds of detainees and forcibly disappeared persons were subjected to  torture in secret prisons during the past few years.

In May 2021, a report issued by the Media Center for Southern Governorates exposed many practices in secret prisons in the occupied southern Yemeni governorates. These prisons constitute the most prominent closed black files and the most important tools of oppression and intimidation practiced by the Saudi-Emirati occupation countries against opponents of occupation criminal practices and destructive policies.

No secret prison belonging to the UAE has been closed during the past years, despite Abu Dhabi's announcement of the withdrawal from Yemen and the handing over of the occupation leadership to Saudi Arabia in early October 2019. In addition, all prisons and detention centers that were affiliated with the Ministry of the Interior before the occupation were transformed into prisons belonging to the armed militias of the Saudi-Emirati occupation.

The militias of the occupation forces have established illegal detention centers in the camps' headquarters of the occupation militias in the various southern governorates.

According to information obtained by the Media Center for the Southern Governorates, Aden Governorate is still the main headquarters of the Emirati secret prisons that are managed under cover by the Saudi occupation forces that took over the leadership of the occupation headquarters from the Emirati in early October 2019.

There are three secret prisons in Bir Ahmed, west of Aden, one of which is a group prison, the second is a solitary prison that has been established, and the third is a secret prison dedicated to the forcibly disappeared.

In addition, the Support Forces, the Security Belt, and the Special Forces Camp in the city have solitary and group prisons. They turned the prison of intelligence and political and national security in Aden into secret prisons belonging to the militias of the Emirati-backed STC, with the exception of the central prison in Aden, which is still subject to the Public Prosecution in Aden.
