[16/09/2019 07:43]

GENEVA-SABA
Regional human rights organizations have called the UN to approve a treaty for protecting journalists and media people during conflicts.

The symposium, which has been organized by Human Rights Information and Qualification Center on the sidelines of the 42 Round of Human Rights Council here, held the UN responsible for leaving criminals of journalistic and media issues in areas of conflicts in Yemen, Iraq, Libya and Syria unpunished.

The Head of My Right Center for Supporting Human Rights and Freedoms Hani al-Aswadi presented a work paper entitled " In Yemen, Journalism is Crime" in which he talked about large-scale crimes against journalist by Houthi militia led by killing and kidnapping journalists, storming media and information institutions and closure most of them.

He pointed out that Houthi militia is the prime violator of journalist issues citing with statements of its leader when he said journalists were more dangerous than fighters.

He made it clear that 80 percent of violating freedom of speech in Yemen is committed by Houthis, who kill journalists, arrest them, torture them and forcibly disappear them, pointed out that the announced numbers are lesser than the real numbers due to weakness of monitoring and documenting violations.

He showed cases to journalists who were killed, arrested or forcibly disappeared and criticized the report made by UN senior experts for neglecting violations committed against journalists.
