Thirty-three Yemeni prisoners held by Saudis holding hunger strike in Ma’rib

About 33 detained citizens of Ma’rib province who are being held in Saudi prisons have decided to continue their hunger strike.

The strike came in protest against the refusal of the Islah Party mercenary authorities in Ma’rib to free the detainees after a court ordered their release.

A document, signed by the detainees inside the Ma’rib prisons, said that it held the Islah responsible for the consequences of the arbitrary arrest against members of the Amir family who have been held for more than two years inside the prisons.

The prisoners called on all human rights organisations to quickly intervene and pressure Islah to release them.

According to local sources, a number of the Amir family have been tortured while being held under Saudi-led mercenary imprisonment.
