Tawakkol Karman urges release of detainees in connection with presidency attack 

Activist and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Tawakkol Karman has urged Yemen's President AbdRabbuh Mansour Hadi and the government to release the people who have been illegally held for over two years in connection with the attack on the presidential palace's mosque.  

In a statement on Facebook, she said: "the extrajudicial detainees have been held without charges or trials and that their continuous hunger strike is a sign the judiciary in our country has not been recovered yet". 
"What Ibrahim Al-Hammadi and his fellow inmates have been demanding for more than two years is that justice takes its course," she said, pointing to attempts to hinder efforts to serve justice with this case.
“We demand a proof beyond doubt they had committed the crime or they shall be released without delay. This is what all laws in the world guarantee. We want Yemen but to be part of this free world," she said. 
Moreover, she called for a committee to investigate violations against the 2011's peaceful protestors as stated in the UN Security Council's resolutions.
