Associated Press released a report claiming that the UAE established a network of secret prisons in Yemen under the supervision of its army.
According to the report, hundreds of prisoners have gone missing in unknown circumferences under the UAE’s undercover operation against Al-Qaeda in Yemen.
AP claims that the UAE owns 18 secret prisons in southern Yemen without the knowledge of the Yemeni government. The report also mentioned horrendous torturing procedures occur in those prisons on a regular basis.
Several high-ranking commanders from the US military force operating in Yemen allegedly participated in questioning of prisoners, but they denied participating in human rights offenses.
AP went on to claim that over 2,000 people vanished in those secret prisons. However, the UAE government denies any breaches of human rights.
It is known that the US has depended on a series of secrets prisons in allied countries in its war on terrorism since 2001.
