Yemen's Public Prosecutor Dr. Ahmed Al-Musai met with the Chargé d'Affairs of the US Embassy in Yemen, Catherine Westley.
The meeting discussed ways to enhance cooperation between the two countries in terms of supporting judicial bodies and prosecutions, rehabilitating judicial authority staff, and preparing rehabilitation and training programs in the field of investigation into money laundering, combating terrorism, drug crimes and cybercrime.
Al-Musai referred to the systematic destruction of the infrastructure of the judicial apparatus as a result of the war ignited by the Houthi militia after its coup against the government.
He briefed the US diplomat on the grave violations committed by the terrorist militia against civilians, especially in the areas under the militia's control.
He pointed to the militias' politicization of the judiciary and the work of prosecutors and courts in their areas of control to serve their agenda, noting that they have distorted school curricula and booby-trapped children's minds too.
The meeting also touched on the steps taken by the judiciary, led by the Public Prosecution, in the incident of the murder of Yemeni-American youngster Abdul Malik Al-Sanabani and its directives to the specialized criminal prosecution in Aden for investigation, which in turn began preparing a report and collecting inferences in the incident during the past two days.
For her part, the US diplomat affirmed her country's support for the security, stability, unity and government of Yemen, expressing readiness to provide support to the judiciary and rehabilitate its staff.
