Alsahwa Net- Teachers and students protested Wednesday in the port city of Aden, demanding to release a teacher, Zakareya Qasi, who has been being detained since one year without charge or trial.
The teachers demanded, during their third protest in one week, the Yemeni government to immediately release Qasim, who is forcibly disappeared, and disclose his destiny.
Last Sunday, dozens of women protested in Aden, demanding to release the forcibly disappeared Qasem .
Sister of Qasim said that they “are not allowed to meet Qasim and that they do not know about his destiny.”
She said that the suffering of the family worsened after news were posted about the death of his brother under torture.
She demanded all internal and external human rights organizations, activists and journalists to stand by the family until the destiny of Qasim is disclosed, asserting that Qasim was forcibly arrested and disappeared without any charge or trial.
Meanwhile, The Abductees’ Mothers Association (AMA) staged, during past months, many protests in front of the Interior Minister’s residence in Aden, demanding to release their sons forcibly disappeared.
During the protest, the mothers appealed to the government to intervene to release their abducted and enforcedly disappeared sons or refer their cases to courts.
The mothers demanded the authorities in Aden to put pressures on the General Prosecution in order to take legal actions, charging it with procrastination and disregard.
The mothers affirmed that the General Prosecution had issued orders to release their relatives and refer the others to the prosecution. However, they are still held in prisons and detention centers.
