Houthi militia sentences to death four journalists, others to prison
The Iran-backed Houthi rebel militia on Saturday issued an arbitrary decree ordering the execution of four journalists kidnapped in its prisons since the beginning of its coup against the legitimate government.
The specialized criminal court, which is controlled by the rebel militia, headed by Houthi judge Mohammed Mufleh, announced the execution of Abdul Khaleq Ahmed Abdu Omran, Akram Saleh Al-Walidi, Harth Saleh Hamid and Tawfiq Mohammed Thabet Al-Mansouri, and punished six others in prison.
The court also sentenced Hisham Tarmum, Hisham Al-Yousfi, Haitham Rawah Al-Shihab, Issam Belghaith, Hassan Anab and Salah Al-Basali to prison, as well as the confiscation of seizures found with journalists, from computers, telephones and others.
10 journalists have been held in the prisons and arrested facilities of the Houthi rebel militia for more than five years after being abducted from their workplaces and homes in the capital Sana’a.
