Zubaidi Clan Appeal to President Saleh [Archives:1998/02/Local News]

January 12 1998

The elders of the Zubaidi clan have contacted the Chairman of the Human Rights and Liberties Committee of the Consultative Council and asked him to present their appeal to President Ali Abdullah Saleh. The group have been in prison for over four months. They are charged with complicity in the Aden bombings of July 1997. The group deny the charges and say that there is yet one little evidence to be presented against them. “We hope the president will see that justice is being done by ordering our release, if at least for the sake of this blessed month of Ramadhan.”
