Yemen: Further information: Two journalists released from Huthi detention

On 1 July, the Huthi de facto authorities released Yemeni journalists Mohammed al-Salahi and Mohammed al-Junaid who had been detained past their sentence expiry for roughly a year. Mohammed al-Salahi and Mohammed al-Junaid were arbitrarily detained by the Huthi Security and Intelligence forces in the city of Hodeidah in October and November 2018, respectively. During their detention, they were subjected to a series of gross human rights violations, including enforced disappearance, torture and other ill-treatment and denial of access to their lawyer. In accordance with their sentence, Mohammed al-Salahi and Mohammed al-Junaid should have been released on 20 June 2022 and 13 July 2022 respectively, but they were kept in custody despite having already served time in pre-trial detention.
