November 29 1999

The Yemen Times has received a letter from the relatives of Adel Abdul Habib Al-Qirshi, editor of the correspondents’ department, Saba News Agency, Aden informing us that he was fiercely assaulted and tortured during the four days that he spent in the Central Security Prison before he was transferred to Al-Mansourah Central Prison without being charged. At the same time, they called upon all labor organizations and human rights organizations to find a way to help him. Mr. Al-Qirshi was suspended from work right after the civil war because of his political affiliation.
