It is with deep sorrow that we learnt of the assassination of Dr. Mohammed Abdulmalik al-Mutawakil, a strong human rights defender and an opposition leader in Yemen. Dr. al-Mutawakil was the father of two women deeply involved in Equitas’ work : Qobol, an IHRTP alumna, and Antelak, co-founder of the Youth Leadership Development Foundation, an Equitas partner organization in Yemen. The murder occurred on Sunday in the capital, Sana’a. The victim was reportedly shot by a gunman on a motorbike. The staff of Equitas extends its sincere condolences to the family and friends of Dr. al-Mutawakil.
