Prisoner’s Affairs Committee decries Saudi unwillingness to conduct prisoner exchanges

Head of the National Committee for Prisoners’ Affairs, Abdulqadir Al-Mortadha, has said on Monday that the Saudis “prevent the implementation of the exchanges that were agreed upon locally,” in a statement to Al-Masirah TV channel.

He stressed that the prisoners’ file is of great interest to the Leader of the Revolution and the Supreme Political Council. “We seek to free our captives through the United Nations or through local mediation.”

Al-Mortadha called on the families of Saudi prisoners held in Yemen, to pressure their leaders into ensuring their sons are freed, and confirmed that Sana’a is ready for any exchange process.
