The Geneva-based Rights Radar Foundation in the Arab World has called on the United Nations on Thursday to take urgent action in order to save dozens of detainees in the UAE occupation-run prisons in Yemen’s southern province of Aden.
The organization said in a statement that many of the detainees were forced to go on hunger strike to draw the world’s attention to their forgotten cause, after facing the most severe torture by jailers.
“The UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths, must move urgently to release and end the suffering of dozens of detainees in Bir Ahmed prison in al-Mansoura district,” Radar demanded.
The organization called on the UN to probe towards crimes and violations committed by the UAE against detainees, which has led to the death and injury of dozens of them in the jails.
The surviving detainees published several written massages to the outside world, expressing the use of severe torture against the prisoners
