Yemeni found dead in Mocha after having been abducted by UAE forces a month prior

One of the detainees in a UAE-run illegal prisons was found dead in the center of Mocha city, which is controlled by UAE-funded forces led by Tariq Afash, west of Taiz province.

On Wednesday, activists on social networking sites confirmed that citizens found the dead body of Tariq Muhammad Zaid Saeed, a month after his kidnapping.

Activist Nasser Al-Kholani wrote on Twitter, quoting Saeed’s family, that the detainee was subjected to various types of torture, including electric shocks and torture with flaming welding sticks while he was in Emirati detention.

Al-Kholani said that the victim’s family has also been subjected to threats, in an attempt to close the criminal case file, which the family demands to be reopened by a specialised and impartial body from outside the city of Mocha.

The shocking and horrific pictures circulated by a number of activists show the ugliness of the torture that the detainee was subjected to while he was in prison.
