Update 3/06/2022: After years at risk of execution, a verdict is expected for the journalists on 31 July. Over the next few weeks, we must pressure the Houthi authorities to release them and quash their death sentences. Please take action, we will hand over the signatures ahead of the verdict.

Four journalists in Yemen face the death penalty, simply for telling the world the truth about suffering in Yemen.

Akram, Abdelkhaleq, Hareth and Tawfiq were just doing their job when they were detained and charged with "spying" and “creating several websites on the internet and social media.” 

They have now been detained, alongside six other journalists, for five years. Abdelkhaleq’s family say that other detainees have heard him screaming as he was being tortured.

Every day, journalists around the world face intimidation, imprisonment and violence, for reporting on human right violations. No-one should be sentenced to death just for doing their job.

The Huthi de facto authorities recently pardoned Hamid Haydara, a prisoner of conscience also sentenced to death.

If we pressure the authorities, the same can happen for Akram, Abdelkhaleq, Hareth and Tawfiq.

Call on the Huthi de facto authorities to immediately quash their death sentences, and release all ten journalists.
