SANA’A – The National Committee for Prisoners’ Affairs in Sana’a has called on the UN envoy to compel the Riyadh delegation to implement the prisoner exchange agreement.
“The committee is committed to the prisoner exchange agreement and will not allow the delegation of Riyadh to avoid or fail its responsibilities, ” Chairman of the Committee, Abdul Qader Al-Murtada said in a press conference held on Thursday.
Abdul Qader Al-Murtada confirmed that it provided full, accurate and professional testimony about the prisoners while the other party did not comply, and that the total number of names that the Saudi side demands released from Yemeni custody, a total of 9,147, is flawed.
He stated that one of the imbalances in the other party’s statements includes 2,171 repeated names, 1,144 names of people who had been released in advance, 1,460 fictitious names and incomplete data, 111 names of al-Qaeda members and 47 names of persons who are imprisoned in Yemen on criminal charges.
He also pointed out that the testimony provided by the other party is evidence of their lack of seriousness, and shows they don’t want to keep to the agreement.
