44 enforced detainees of the prisons supervised by UAE forces in Al-Mukalla, capital of Hadramout province, called upon The Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Ahmed Al-Maissari for their release.

According to local sources, 44 detainees who were forcibly arrested demanded in an urgent letter The Interior Minister Ahmed al-Maissari to take the lead in deciding their case and to investigate them by the criminal prosecution in Hadramout province and to show their files.

According to the sources, the Hadramout prosecution refuses to investigate with them, explaining that this is not within its jurisdiction and that the Aden prosecutor is responsible for them as they came from the province of Aden.

It is noted that the detainees were in the secret prison of the Arab alliance in Aden, and they were transferred by the UAE forces on May 11 to the central prison in Al-Mukalla secretly, and were not investigated by the Hadhramaut prosecution.

The detainees are from the provinces of Aden, Abyan and Lahj and they have been forcibly hidden for more than a year and a half.

Al-Maissari said he had reached to an agreement with the UAE regarding these prisons and said that "all prisons in government-controlled areas are under the control of the Yemeni prosecutor," indicating that they were under the control of UAE forces.

Reports of international and local organizations, including investigations by the Associated Press, have revealed the torture against forcibly hidden prisoners in the secret prisons run by the UAE in southern Yemen.

Last week, Amnesty International revealed a new details of the enforced disappearances and torture of the UAE in southern Yemen and called for investigation in these files considering it war crimes.
