Alsahwa Net- Undersecretary of the Human Rights Ministry and the government representative to the UN-sponsored negotiation on prisoners’ exchange, Majed Fadhayl, said that the phased-release agreement with the Houthis on the exchange of prisoners and abductees will eventually lead to a full release of all prisoners and detainees.
Office of the UN Special Envoy to Yemen said on Sunday in a joint statement with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) that the government and the Houthis rebels reached a partial agreement on release of prisoners.
The government and the Houthis will soon exchange lists for the upcoming release for final approval and implementation, Fadhayl, said in a statement quoted by the London-based Asharq Al-Awast daily Newspaper.
The exchange of prisoners and detainees is part of the Stockholm agreement that both parties signed in December 2018.
