U.S.-Linked Forces Are Detaining A Prominent Journalist In Yemen

Adel Al-Hasani

Yemeni journalist Adel Al-Hasani always knew his work was risky. He’s spent years trying to inform the world about the crisis in his country, where the U.S. and other nations have fueled a civil war since 2014.

That included working with foreign reporters to shed light on the crisis. In September, he intervened with officials in Yemen’s port city of Mokha to help two international journalists who had been detained when they traveled there to cover the war. After Al-Hasani negotiated their release, they were deported back home to Europe.

Soon afterward, when he tried to return to his own home in Aden ― a major city controlled by forces backed by the United Arab Emirates, a close U.S. partner ― authorities there arrested him.

He’s been behind bars ever since, where he has been tortured into providing false testimony and repeatedly provided differing explanations of his charges, his lawyer, Liza Manea Saeed, told HuffPost. She said she has obtained legal paperwork clearing him of all charges, which should require officials to release him.
