The Nobel Peace Prize laureate Tawakkol Karman has called on local authorities in Marib province to release the prisoner of opinion Hafez Mutair.
In her message to governor of Marib Sultan al-Aradah, Karman said: "You have achieved a prominent position in the eyes and hearts of your people. Your status is deeply affected by keeping Hafez Mutair detained outside the law."
She added that there was a military judiciary that tried him and convicted him with committing military crimes, pointing out that the Yemeni army during the five years suffered many conspiracies, destruction and internal coups, but no military leaders of coups and conspirators have been prosecuted.
Karman called for the release of activist Mutair, pointing out that the military judiciary should be free to try those who betrayed the military honor and conspired against the country and the people.
