WJWC Condemns Imprisonment of Journalist Al-Khubaji in Aden

The Women Journalists Without Chains (WJWC) strongly condemns the illegal imprisonment of journalist Mishaal Al-Khubaji and the seizure of his personal mobile by order of the judge of Sira’s first instance in Aden Governorate on August 18, 2022 for reasons related to freedom of expression.

While deploring the detention of Al-Khubaji and the arbitrary restriction of his freedom, the WJWC denounces such intimidation against journalists and media professionals and the misuse of the judiciary to silence these voices with the aim of preventing them from carrying out their professional duties.

The WJWC calls on the relevant authorities in Aden to protect journalists from persecution and harassment, and holds the security authorities in the governorate responsible for safeguarding the life of journalist Al-Khubaji.
