    SAM Organization for Rights and Liberties expresses its condemnation of the ruling issued by the Court of Appeal in the capital, Sana'a, today, Sunday, February 12, against both: the actress "Entisar Al-Hammadi" and "Yousra Al-Nashiri". which upheld the initial sentence of five years' imprisonment, on charges of indecent acts.

    According to testimonies received by SAM, Entisar Al-Hammadi and her family were shocked by the verdict, while the judge responded to her objection by threatening to add another five years!

    SAM organization pointed out that the ruling issued against the actress "Al-Hammadi" and her companion showed an unjustified willfulness by the Houthi militia through the use of the judiciary under their control, as the Houthi group practices systematic repression against women in Yemen, and discrimination based on illogical sectarian reference, in addition to the group's own vision and perceptions of women and their role in society.
