The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) militias have released an academic, after four months of detention.
Human rights sources said that the Al-A’asifah Brigade forces released 47-year-old Dr. Abdullah Abdul Jabbar al-Qubati, after he was arrested at the entrance to Aden four months ago while returning from the city of Seiyun.
Earlier, sources had reported that al-Qubati was transferred to prisons in the UAE, and the STC militias refused to disclose it.
According to the sources, al-Qubati was detained in al-Tawahi prison and was severely tortured by the UAE-backed militias, in a solitary cell of one half square meter. He was also banned from any contact or visit, and banned from medical care
