In a social media post, Karman, a journalist and activist who was one of the leaders of Yemen’s 2011 Arab Spring revolution that ousted Saleh, said the three men were “disappeared” in the capital Sanaa last month.
“My brother Mohamed Abdul Salam and his two friends Omar Yaseen Abdul Aziz and Mohamed Kahla were enforced disappeared one month ago,” Karman, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2011, said on Facebook.
She blamed security agents loyal to “the fascist coup alliance”, a reference to the Houthis and Saleh, who have established a transitional administration in Sanaa to rival the Aden-based government.
Karman said the kidnappings were a response to “our political stance rejecting the coup”.
“This crime is added to the file of the deposed Saleh and the Houthi militia, which is full of kidnappings and enforced disappearances of thousands of Yemeni citizens,” she added.
Mohamed al-Bakheit, a member of the Houthi political council, said he had no comment to make about the allegations.
“I have no information on the incident and I cannot confirm or deny,” he told Anadolu Agency. “In case we get information on that, for sure we will comment.”
According to an earlier statement from the Karman family, the three men disappeared on July 8 when they were seized by Houthi-Saleh affiliated security forces.
