venezuela holding out. your opposite with headlines on al-jazeera coming up next it's inside story to say this. torture and rampant sexual abuse in secret prisons in yemen former detainees say they're being run by the u.a.e. the emirates a key player in the yemeni war denies the claims so what will or can the international community do this is inside story.
8:22 pm
hello and welcome to the program today with me piece it all being seven former detainees say that the united arab emirates is running secret prisons in yemen and that sexual torture in those prisons is rampant and systematic the year we deny is the accusations were made to reporters from the associated press news agency however the charges highlight both the depth of saudi and amarok involvement in yemen civil war and the brutality that's become a whole mock of this conflict we begin with this report from diana cutting a window into what's being described as a world of rampant sexual torture and impunity these drawings were smuggled out of iraq to run prisons in yemen made on plastic plates with ink detainees held without charge or trial described humiliation to the associated press news agency one caption in arabic says it's real terrorism and another drawing prisoners being
8:23 pm
transported in a pickup truck are naked blindfolded and handcuffed. seven former detainees spoke to reporters about what they've witnessed they say rape electrocution and beatings took place at five detention centers including at the iraqi forces headquarters in the country the u.a.e. mission in geneva tweeted that it has never managed or run prisons or secret detention centers in yemen but the accusations don't come as a surprise in march human rights groups accuse the united arab emirates of making arbitrary arrests in southern yemen. we have documented in the past that the u.a.e. is responsible for pearce's over an arbitrary detention in europe. for months many residents demanded to know where their missing relatives are u.a.e. military commanders in yemen have repeatedly denied running secret prisons their reporting they had the government set up a committee to investigate the u.a.e.
8:24 pm
and interior to flatly deny any rule and use again but abuses continue and all their prisoners have. rights to. the three year war in yemen has caused a complete breakdown of law and order especially in the south where militias operate beyond the control of the courts and the internationally recognized government in addition to the disappearances in torture there have been reports of executions and assassinations diana carom al-jazeera. well before bring in our guest let's take a closer look now at the conflict in yemen in march twenty fifteen who the rebels advanced on the capital some are refusing to accept a new constitution proposed by president months or hardy who was forced to leave the city later that month saudi arabia assembled a coalition of allies including the u.a.e. to support hardy's government in what became a civil war against the who sees
8:25 pm
a morality troops of forty extensively particularly in the south around the port city of aden in june of twenty seventeen the associated press news agency revealed the u.a.e. was running secret prisons in yemen and accusations the u.a.e. noise. ok let's get going introducing our panel to you today joining us from santa in yemen we have a say in eighty a pro who's the journalist from toronto in canada a hashimi the director of the center for middle east studies at the university of denver and also in sanaa a team must marty. political analyst and the editor in chief and the publisher of the yemen post welcome to you all hussein. first how many people are we talking about here. i think there could be one hundred because from the beginning of the water we have heard many. money claim made by some people in the south
8:26 pm
especially from women who are claiming that their husband. has been in but as and this seems to be that the united arab emirates is using what they call the fight on al qaida so they can embed as in anyone they want and no one can ask them or no one can there in the south or to say anything to them and this is to be honest is the same what the united states has been using they can detain anyone around the world and they can say we are fighting al qaeda and i've seen on social media even before this report that many brought us there from women and children and families of this diva who has been held for a month now some of them has exceeded the two to three years they brought us to aden in other city in the south but there was kind of a blackout of the outside media in the united arab emirates of course will not let any media outlet in the south to cover this. crime that is done
8:27 pm
against but isn't as clearly hussein social media is not a reliable source and i take on board what you're saying of course but we maybe have to issue a little bit of a housekeeping notice here wrapping up our entire discussion with one big allegedly . also in sana'a one identifying factor here is the accents of the people who are doing the torturing the accents apparently come from the u.a.e. are you convinced that that is factually correct that's the. information that we received a couple of months. go that these private prisons of secret prisons are being run by a coalition forces led by the u.a.e. but also with the with the knowledge of the us government as well but the torture has been taking place by the u.a.e. forces and its allies. but again this is information that we received
8:28 pm
a couple of months ago from reliable sources or military sources sources who are close to the u.a.e. forces in aden. these are still claims and allegations the international recognized government of president hadi needs to investigate these cases sadly their government is weak in aden and don't have any or much authority there but these claims are serious they need to be taken seriously and independent investigators must be allowed to visit these prisoners in order to see if these claims are true or not sometimes even if the government does investigate the truth is sometimes hidden so international n.g.o.s human rights watch amnesty access etc these n.g.o.s must be given the chance to visit the prisoners in these prisons and talk to them and see what their comments are because right now everything is still great. very serious accusations but these prisoners must be visited and be treated
8:29 pm
legally because sometimes stupid claims or under terror and in the end it's not terrorism it's just his link to the muslim brotherhood party or the human rights of islam or other so. and not only investigation but also the families must be aware where this prison is ours. even rights organizations must visit these prisoners and listen from them and talk to them see what their comments are to ensure that everything that's taking place is legal and under the international law not to hush me into wrong so this is clearly a war crime but the idea of layering in on top of that sexual abuse that gives it a whole new sinister dimension right and it's nothing i think that should shock anyone who studies and follows human rights practices in the middle east the united arab emirates has quite a sordid and horrific track record in terms of the use of internal repression and
8:30 pm
torture within its own territory so now that it's actually engaging in torture outside of its territory in a location where it is actively involved in a war comes as no surprise this is in many ways part and parcel of a consistent policy of repression that we've seen from the united arab emirates both within its own territories and other parts of the arab world who are as deeply invested. also in santa your sources and your reporting what are you getting the sense of in terms of how far up the command chain this is being paid how far up the command chain is somebody saying yes this is the way to go because presumably some weird level the justifying this themselves by saying this is torture it's an evolution of torture and we're doing it to what extract information from people. i mean of course they will say that the information from the people but you have not the right to detain someone for many
8:31 pm
many months without any. like without putting him into into justice on i think all this is to blame on. the government and i want to just to mention that the minister of. interior minister of the government that riyadh has said two months ago that all prisons in the south is under the control of united arab emirates they are in control of the security forces of the port authority and this prove that their claim of they not united arab emirate mission in geneva when they said about this report that there is no it isn't run by united arab emirates in yemen and all but isn't run by yemeni government and this show that the yemeni government actually cannot do anything to stop to stop this but all this blame on the united arab emirates that it will actually is bring in this tactic those
8:32 pm
prisons into yemen if that might remind us with the guantanamo bay the mind us with abu ghraib and united states used to take but is not as and so called redemption events and flights to bring them to other countries to now the united arab emirates is doing it exactly in yemen i would just add one thing about when i said about the social media so tell me. and this time is the only blot forum for the ordinary people the only put out black vote for poor people and we've seen the effects of social media do it in the out of best bank but what i said about the social media because all this report that has been said now in the associate breast and other agency is we have been hearing this in yemen for forty edits but because united out of him out of actually doesn't allow some time anyone to cover this and do it in watching all the other t.v. channel about this latest report i haven't seen anyone for example from the south who can talk about it because if someone would be if he would mention anything
8:33 pm
against united out of him out of he would be sacked we remember one minister of the government who has criticised united out of it for net not letting heidi go back on set and then his name is salas so yeah he what he was forced to resign another to the duty but i mean instead of been done that as well when he criticised united arab emirates he was forced to resign and his name is you body this show you the percent will you and. what you're saying about social media but unite the reality of social media anyone can set up a fake account we can never sort of you know nail down the provenance of individual people as they are operating inside the echo chamber of social media a key moment mari what was your reaction this time last year almost to the us reaction when it said well we haven't seen any evidence of torture we haven't seen any evidence of secret prisons i was surprised that there were so frank and the
8:34 pm
reason why there's no evidence is because they're hiding the evidence yes they're doing a good job in hiding the evidence.
