Houthi Court Sentences 30 Abductees to Death

A court controlled by the Iran-backed Houthi rebels sentenced on Tuesday 30 abductees to death on charge of espionage, an offence punishable by death sentence in the so called Houthis’ judicial system.

Rights sources said the so called State Security Court issued capital punishment against 30 abductees, most of whom are academics, teachers, and university students, saying that the charges were “baseless.”

On the other hand, International Amnesty condemned the verdict and called on Houthis to halt executing and drop charges against the abductees, especially those with political charges.

Local sources said the abductees chanted the national anthem when they heard the verdict.
