Joint Statement on Hunger Strike by Yemeni Journalist Ahmed Maher

The undersigned organizations hereby express their solidarity with journalist Ahmed Maher, who is incarcerated at Bir Ahmed Prison under the custody of the Southern Transitional Council (STC). According to a credible and well-informed source, Maher initiated an open hunger strike last week demanding a prompt trial. Since his arrest in August 2022, the Specialized Criminal Court in Aden has repeatedly postponed hearings in the Ahmed Maher case.
