Prisoners in a prison in the city of Aden in southern Yemen supervised by the United Arab Emirates disobedience in protest against the procedures of the prison administration.
According sources inside the Bir Ahmed prison in Aden , Aljazeera TV reported that the prisoners demonstrated in protest against the division of the Wards into prison cells and the distribution of detainees in small groups inside.
The sources added that chaos reigns in prison after a security force stormed the dormitory and attempted to build concrete walls to ensure its control and the distribution of detainees there.
In the summer of 2017, an investigation by the Associated Press revealed that there were 18 secret prisons run by the United Arab Emirates in Yemen, where detainees were subjected to various forms of torture.
The UAE has denied running prisons or secret detention centers in southern Yemen and previous allegations of torture of prisoners.
The Rights Radar (RR) organization for human rights in the Arab World appealed to the United Nations to take urgent action to save the lives of detainees in the Bir Ahmad prison in the temporary Capital Aden.
The Amsterdam-based non-governmental organization urged the United Nations special envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths, to include the issue of Aden detainees in urgent cases in his moves, to end the suffering of dozens of them.
The organisation said that detainees in the prison of Bir Ahmed had to go on hunger strike to draw the attention of the world to their forgotten case, after they faced the most severe torture and abuse by their prisoners, calling for an impartial and transparent investigation into the circumstances of death and serious injuries in the Aden detention camps and for the reasons that led to the loss of three detainees to their minds.
Since last year, the prisoners of Bir Ahmed have occasionally carried out an open hunger strike in protest against the failure of the prosecution's orders to release them immediately.
