December 10 2001

The Social Peace and Arbitration House Committee (SPAHC) strongly condemned in a press release acts of kidnappings, considering them to be against Yemeni customs and a distortation of the reputation of the Yemeni people. The press release issued by the House Committee described these unfavorable acts as also being against the Islamic religion and as exotic to our country.
It called upon all the social sects to fight kidnapping incidents.
This came after a group of five tribesmen abducted Karl Lienert in Baghdad Street.
