Over 1,000 Yemeni citizens have been imprisoned and detained in several Saudi and Emirati forces-run secret jails in Yemen’s southern provinces, according to a reported published by the Arabic post website.
“The majority of the detainees inside prisons are opponents of Saudi and UAE policies, and have been accused of “coordinating terrorist operations”,” the report added.
According to the report, the most important prisons used by Saudi Arabia to punish and eliminate anyone who opposes its policies is located in the city of Seiyun, in Hadhramaut province.
The report affirmed that dozens of Yemenis have been forcibly held for up to three years, without any contact with their families.
According to informed sources, the Saudi officers responsible for the judicial investigations in the prison often practice the most horrific forms of torture against detainees, including severe beatings, electric shocks and water-based torture.
