Coinciding with the fifth anniversary of the assassination of President Saleh and Al-Zoka by the Iran-backed Houthi terrorist militias, Association Maonah and the Geneva Centre for Justice renew their call on the international community to open an international investigation into the crime after it was proven that the justice system in Yemen had failed.

On the eve of the fifth anniversary of the assassination of former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh and Secretary-General of the General People's Congress Aref Al-Zoka, by the Iranian-backed Houthi terrorist militias. the Association Maonah for Human Rights and the Geneva Centre for Justice issued a joint statement in which they renewed the call for the international community to open an international investigation into this terrorist crime after the failure of the justice system in Yemen.
In a statement issued by its office in New York,Association Maonah for Human Rights said that it renews its adherence to the evidence contained in the report of the Group of Experts on Yemen for the year 2020, which documented this terrorist crime and proved the lack of means and capacity of the Yemeni justice system to conduct trials in accordance with international human rights law.

In this regard, we believe that the international investigation should include all crimes committed by the Houthi militias, including the crime of assassinating President Saleh in 2017, as well as the investigation into the crime of the 2011 terrorist attack on the Presidential Palace Mosque in Sana'a, which resulted in the death and injury of countless innocent civilians.

Besides, we would like to highlight that five terrorists arrested following this terrorist attack on President Saleh were later released and protected by the Houthi militia and the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood militias in Yemen, while their cases are still under investigation. This not only amounts to a violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2014, but also constitutes a flagrant violation of the principle of judicial independence.

The crimes of the Houthis and others against civilians, including attacks on media offices and healthcare facilities, as well as schools and educational institutions, must not go unnoticed, and all perpetrators must be held accountable. The millions of Yemenis who have been and continue to be victims of militias deserve justice.

It is worth mentioning that Association Maonah raised this issue within the framework of the interactive dialogue meetings on the Yemen file in September held at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva (attached is a video link to a speech by Diana Jordan from Aid for Human Rights and the Geneva International Centre for Justice

In conclusion, the Association Maonah and the Geneva International Centre for Justice reiterated in a letter sent yesterday to the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague their demand to open a new international investigation into this heinous crime and to prosecute all those involved in it, individuals, groups and countries until justice and justice for the victims and their families are achieved and the perpetrators do not escape punishment in accordance with international law.
