Freedom Foundation condemns threats to journalist, Rashad Al-Sharabi by Mareb MP

Sana'a (27,Dec.,2012)

Freedom Foundation for media freedom, rights and development condemns threats to journalist 

Rashad Al-Sharabi by a member of the parliament Sheikh Jeabel Tuaiman, representative of one constituency in Mareb province, against the background of  articles published by Al-Sharabi in some Yemeni newspapers and websites in which he criticized the negatives of behavior at school running by Tuaiman family members in his tribal area in Mareb.  

Al-Sharabi has clarified in a statement to Freedom Foundation that he has received consecutive calls on Wednesday night (26, Dec., 2012) from the MP Sheikh Jeabel Tuaiman demanding  him to submit documents related to what he had published, regarding the subject of some women teachers abused from Tuaiman daughters in Mareb province. 
Al-Sharabi confirmed that he had received a discipline threat with insulting words from Tuaiman if Al-Sharabi don't apologize for him in public.
Freedom Foundation condemns these threats and considers it irresponsible behaviors by a social figure who is supposed to ensure the protection of rights and provide an example in dealing with the press, it  also considers such threats an abuse of media freedoms in Yemen and an attempt to silence the voice of the press, subjecting
journalists to self-censorship and forcing them to abandon their role in transiting the truth and expressing the concerns and aspirations of the citizens.
Freedom Foundation demanding the Interior Ministry and the concerned authorities to stand in front of such illegal incidents and protect journalists from any danger threatening and hurting them or any of their relatives.
