SAM Organization for Rights and Liberties issued On Wednesday, July 3, 2019, a human rights report entitled "What's left for us?"

The report documents violations of arbitrary detention and psychological and physical torture of women in the war.

The report provided testimonies of victims and relatives of victims and witnesses who spoke to SAM about serious violations against women detained in Houthis militia prisons, including police station detentions and military checkpoints

"Although women in Yemen have a special status, yet with the control of the Houthis group in Sana'a they have lost their status and are being subjected to gross violations contrary to human norms and values ​​and in contravention of the Convention on the Rights of Women," said Tawfiq al-Hamidi, president of the SAM Organization. Where a wide range of arbitrary treatment by the Houthi militia for women in Yemen, were reported."

SAM said in the report that the Houthis had formed a security apparatus for women whose job was to break into houses, arrest and gather intelligence on women, and gather field information about opponents.

SAM added that it had documented sites to detain and disappear women, including abandoned places used for interrogation and psychological torture, homes of citizens forced to leave them, and police departments controlled by Houthis militia.

SAM said in its report that women detainees were subjected to severe torture and cruel treatment, prompting them to try to commit suicide.

SAM called on the Houthis militia to release all women prisoners on political grounds, stop putting more women in prison and improve the conditions of women prisoners while completing their release procedures.

SAM said the Houthi militia should allow human rights organizations, women and human rights activists to meet with women in prisons and see their situation, stop slander of detained women and delete abusive videos.

It also called on the legitimate authorities to amend some laws that are unfair to women, especially the articles on so-called honor crimes, in order to guarantee the dignity of women and their right to life.

At the end of the report, SAM expressed its willingness to cooperate with anyone who needs additional information or assistance in reaching witnesses. Also called on investigation committees working in Yemeni at all levels and names to investigate the violations of Yemeni women.
