REPORT SUMMARY:

The raging war in Yemen has led to an increase in the commission of human rights violations in all governorates, including war crimes and crimes against humanity that continue to be committed, and the accompanying fragmentation of the justice system and its dispersal of the controlling authorities, and the emergence of new local actors who assume informal tasks related to the administration of justice in places where the state is virtually absent, which has led to an increase in challenges to the rule of law and the administration of justice, and vulnerable groups still face many barriers. In its quest for access to justice and is in dire need of meaningful legal protection, in light of the absence of security authorities in the country, a huge increase in the number of crimes and noticeable changes in the nature and volume of cases pending before the judiciary, an increase can also be observed in personal status cases, including cases of domestic violence, divorce and custody, where the data we collect from all governorates shows a significant increase in the number of murders, kidnappings and rape committed against women and children, moreover, The number of criminal cases as a direct result of the volatile security situation and the control of non-state groups in most governorates in the north and south.

Arbitrary arrest and detention, enforced disappearance and torture are among the highest violations committed by all parties to the conflict, including the Houthi militias, the Yemeni government, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and several Yemeni armed groups supported by the UAE and Saudi Arabia, through arbitrary arrests, enforced disappearances, torture, ill-treatment of people, and the detention of hundreds of Yemenis in official and unofficial detention centers across the country.
