Arab parliament condemns Houthi violations against Yemeni MPs

CAIRO, Arab Parliament President Meshal Al-Salmi “strongly” denounced Houthi militias’ violations against Yemeni members of parliament, calling for providing international protection to them.

Al-Salmi said in a statement that the United Nations (UN) should adopt resolutions aiming at punishing Houthi militias and their supporters, protecting Yemeni MPs, releasing prisoners and returning houses and properties to their original owners.

He added that he had recently received a letter from Yemeni Parliament Speaker Sultan Al-Burkani on Houthi militias’ grave breaches, including putting MPs under house arrest and forcing them to attend “illegal sessions”.

He pointed out unconstitutional and illegal trials of all the MPs who rejected Houthi militias’ coup, bombing their houses and rendering their families homeless in violation of all international values, laws and norms.
