Humanitarian organisation condemns Saudi torture of prisoners in Ma’rib

The Eye Humanity Center for Rights and development  strongly condemned the torture of detainee Khaled Mohammed Saleh Al-Amir in the Saudi-led coalition’s intelligence prison in the city of Ma’rib.

In a statement,  the center confirmed that after torturing Al-Amir, he was transferred to the Authority Hospital in Ma’rib, after severe suffering from heart disease, diabetes and other diseases that he had been suffering from for three years inside a prison in Ma’rib.

The center added that the condition of the detainee was complicated by negligence and torture, and he suffered kidney failure. “He is in a clinically dead state, and no one knows at the present time the result of his critical health condition.”

The statement confirmed that the Islah militants arrested Brigadier General Khaled Al-Amir with his son Muhammad and his nephew Bassem Al-Samit in the city of Ma’rib in 2020.

The center held the coalition’s countries responsible for the crime and earlier crimes, calling for an investigation into this crime to hold coalition’s leaders and those proven to be involved in these crimes accountable.

It appealed to  the United Nations and the Security Council to assume their responsibilities and break their shameful silence and not shirk their duties.
