Rights group calls for investigating UAE’s "war crimes" in Yemen

Practices of torture against Yemeni detainees in UAE-controlled prisons must be investigated by the Emirati authorities, says the Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor.

In a statement issued Monday, the rights group stressed the urgent need for investigation into violations committed by UAE-affiliated groups.

The Geneva-based Euro-Med Monitor said that involved perpetrators must also be held to account, noting that hundreds of detainees in Yemen have been subjected to physical and sexual torture as well as mass assault in prisons run by armed groups that belong to the United Arab Emirates, a member of the Arab Coalition.

Referring to testimonies and drawings leaked recently from Bir Ahmed prison in the southern city of Aden, where at least 150 detainees are currently held, the Euro-Med team reported that the practices against detainees included inhuman transfer in trucks. Such inhuman practices included searching detainees while naked, humiliating them while at gunpoint, and having dogs attack and intimidate them.
