Manchester Amnesty Weekly Action

Please do this action and make a difference.

Luke Symons, a 29-year-old British national, arbitrarily detained by the Huthi de facto authorities for more than four years in Sanaa, Yemen, has been moved to solitary confinement. His health condition is deteriorating.

He was detained on 4 April 2017 by the Huthis at a security checkpoint in Ta’iz, a city in southwestern Yemen, for what appears to be no more than possessing a British passport. To date, he has not been charged nor has he appeared before a judge.

Amnesty International urges the Huthi de facto authorities to immediately release Luke Symons. Pending his release, they must ensure he is protected from torture and other ill-treatment and that he has legal representation, regular access to his family, and adequate medical care.
