OHCHR's report was biased, ignored Houthi atrocities, says HR Minister
[19/09/2018 06:24]

GENEVA- SABA
Minister of Human Rights Mohammed Askar said the report of the OHCHR affiliate experts issued in August 28, 2018 regarding the status of human rights in Yemen was biased and ignored the Houthi militia's atrocities.

Addressing a seminar his ministry organized in the UN Human Rights Council on Wednesday, Askar said the report paid no attention to the militia's responsibility for the war (through mounting the coup in 2014 and invadingthe country's provincesincluding Taiz and Hodeidah in 2015) and the war atrocities that they have been committing throughout the war to now:the bombing of the infrastructure including public and private properties; forcible recruitment of child soldiers, the killing of 14220 civilians including 1500 children and 865 women and the injury of 31127 other civilians including 1593 through landmines; forcible disappearance of 21706 people and torturing 86 people to death; and the fact that 627 of the Houthi violationstargeted journalists and included killings andtortures; and the sabotaging of peace talks in Geneva, Beil and Kuwait and in lastly in Geneva again, by failing to show up in the talksthat were supposed to be held in September 6.

Al-Maysari cited a whole raft of violations the militia committed in Hodeidah in and Taiz and the UN report avoided attributing them to the Houthis.

He said that the UN experts even avoided visiting the city of Taiz which Houthis have been besieging for years, despite the government's call to the experts, in different occasions, to visitit.
