Thank you very much for this brave article you recently published on violations of press freedom in Yemen. Now I could say: Like a father like a son.

In addition to what you mentioned in your article I, as a journalist who strongly believe in freedom of the press, also believe that journalists and editors should not be more afraid than ever. It is their duty to make the authorities angry if these authorities are not telling the truth. They do not have to worry about closure of newspapers, and the subsequent problems of that, because they are fighting a fair war and with each war there would be a price to pay. But at the end, believe me, freedom fighters will win.
