The UN envoy for Yemen, Martin Griffiths

The Yemeni internationally-recognized government on Tuesday criticized the UN envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths, for his "foggy stances at crimes and violations committed by the Houthi group."
"Griffiths' position, in which he has not clearly pointed a finger at Iran's mercenaries [the Houthi group] for committing the shocking slaughter in the Taiz central prison's women section, is very disappointing .. and reflects foggy stances at the group's crimes and violations," information minister said.
These UN "envoy's foggy positions prolong the crisis, serve not efforts to end war and make peace, and give the Houthi group green light to escalate its military operations and repeatedly attack civilians," Moammar al-Eryani added.
Hadi minister called the envoy to visit Taiz city to see the scene of the "terrorist crime in the central prison and the persistent siege imposed on the city since 2015 amid international silence."
The official government has accused the group of shelling Taiz central prison killing six female inmates including a child and injuring others, charges denied by the group.
The UN Envoy Griffiths has deplored the terrible attack, without naming the attacker, calling for the need for protecting civilians and civil facilities, in accordance to international humanitarian law.
