Yemen … Government threat to boycott prisoners’ consultations

In a note addressed to the envoy of the Secretary General of the United Nations in Yemen, the Yemeni official explained that “silence (UN) has encouraged the Houthi group to continue to commit further violations against prisoners and abductees”.
