Sana’a (5/1/ 2013):

 

Freedom Foundation (FF) for media freedom, rights and development condemned the stick-beating assault on the journalist, Sabr and confiscating his mobile phone and camera and detaining him for more than 5 hours in the Shumailah police station in Sana'a. 

Meanwhile, FF condemned the attack on Suhail TV correspondent, Abdul Hafeez A-Hattami and Al-Olaa newspaper reporter Bassam Al-Zuraiki, in Hodeida governorate bythugs belonging to influential personals in Bajel one of Hodeida directorates.

As well as, Freedom Foundation condemned the threat to the Sudanese journalist, living in Yemen,  Adel Al-Saeed by unidentified people via a phone call with number kept by the Freedom Foundation.

 

 Saber reported to Freedom Foundation that he has been beaten with sticks and batons

by Central Security Soldiers, on Saturday afternoon (05/January/2013), who’s taken his camera and mobile phone and amount of money while he was covering a sit-in for a number of Osab’s people, who were protesting against the killing of one of the sons of their region (businessman Lutf Al-Imad), who was killed by thugs glossed by the director of the police station, as the victim's relatives said. 

Saber added that he has been freed after 5 hours of detention without allowing him to call his family and drive his son home, who was left alone in the car. 
Al-Hattami and Al-Zuraiki informed Freedom Foundation that they have been attacked in front of the building of the directorate of Bajel while they were doing a coverage for a peaceful demonstration (In Bab Al-Naqa), demanding the provision of services for their region and holding corrupted persons accountable.
In other hand, Al-Saeed has clarified by a phone call to FF that the threat to him today has come after a previous threat from the same phone number. The threat came a week after storming his home at night by four persons in civilian clothes, who searched his home, tampered
with its contents, and took private papers and family pictures. He added that these threats came as a result of publishing some articles in Al-Thowri newspaper, in which he was supporting the forces of change in his country of Sudan.
Freedom Foundation calls upon the interior ministry and security authorities to take quick action and immediate investigation in these incidents and threats, and revealoffenders for prosecution. The FF expressed its concern and regret at what happened to those media people, which consider to be a violation of the rights and freedoms of media.
Such practices are against the constitution and the laws and cannot be justified any more. FF emphasizes the need for the security bodies to adhere to human rights standards and called for an end to the arbitrary detention of journalists and media workers, and stop assaulting and threatening them.

 FF declares its full solidarity with journalists and media workers who were subjected to these

violations.
