Revolutionary detainee found, allegedly tortured
A lawyer from Hood, a Yemeni human rights organization, Abdulrahman Barman said Wassem is a soldier of the First Armored Division, and his name was registered as one of one of those who disappeared during the 2011 uprising. He’s been missing for one-and-a-half years, Barman said.
Wassem was taken to the police station, where lawyers from HOOD took him to the Field Hospital in Change Square.
According to Barman, Waseem was found with marks of torture over his body, with cuts and bruise on his face and signs of burns on his shoulders and back.
Abdul-Karim Tho’ail, head of the general counsel of the revolution detainees, said Wassem’s release resulted from the recent decision by Public Security to form a common committee to work on the cases of missing revolutionaries.
