Alsahwa Net- The international Federation of Journalists (IFJ) has called on the Yemeni government to pay the salaries of the Yemeni journalists that have been suspended for nearly three years.
IFJ threatened the Yemen's internationally recognized government to hold it accountable if it continues its current approach of not paying Yemeni journalists salaries.
In a statement issued by the Federation on Wednesday, the Secretary-General IFJ Anthony Bellanger holds the Yemeni "legitimate" government responsibility for the deterioration of the situation of journalists and media workers in government institutions in Yemen because of the cutting of salaries for more than two and a half.
IFJ said that nearly 1,000 journalists working in public information institutions (television, radio and newspapers) living in the areas controlled by the Houthis suffer from a humanitarian crisis and stifling living conditions that threaten their lives and the lives of their families.
