Canada CJFE Letter of Support for Khaled Al-Hammadi


President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi

February 1, 2013


I am writing on behalf of Canadian Journalists for Free Expression (CJFE), a non-profit, non-governmental organization that works to promote and protect press freedom and freedom of expression around the world.


CJFE is very concerned about an article admonishing veteran journalist Khaled al-Hammadi published on the website of Yemen’s Ministry of Defense on January 8, 2013, and then reprinted in a number of government-supported newspapers and websites.

The Ministry’s article was issued following al-Hammadi’s piece in the London-based daily Al-Quds Alarabi observing the appointment of President Hadi’s family members to 180 military positions. CJFE upholds the Ministry’s right to respond to al-Hammadi’s piece, but also defends his right to free expression without risking negative repercussions.

Indeed, al-Hammadi has reported that he appears to have been placed under surveillance by military personnel and because of well-placed fears for his safety has had to resort to security measures to protect himself.
