The legitimate government in Yemen has condemned the murder of Judge Muhammad Hamran, hours after he was kidnapped in front of his house in Sanaa.

The Yemeni government considered that the killing of Judge Hamran represents “an extension of the series of systematic targeting of the judicial system and its cadres, which do not implement the directives of the Houthi militia literally.”

Yemeni Information Minister Muammar Al-Eryani said, through a series of tweets he posted on his personal account on Twitter: “We condemn and denounce in the strongest terms the murder of Judge Muhammad Hamran by an armed gang belonging to one of the leaders of the terrorist Houthi militia affiliated with Iran, who kidnapped him in front of his house in the capital. Sana’a, after systematic incitement against him by militia media, and a series of attacks targeting a number of judges.”

Al-Eryani added, “This heinous crime is an extension of the series of systematic targeting of the judiciary and its cadres, which do not literally implement the directives of the Houthi militia; And its efforts to tighten its control over the judiciary, using it as a tool to cover up its crimes, and legitimize its practices of looting land and real estate, and settling its political accounts.”

The Yemeni minister called on the international community to “exercise real pressure on the leaders of the terrorist Houthi militia, to stop their systematic targeting of the judicial system and its attempts to seize it, and not to use the judiciary as a tool to whitewash its crimes and violations, and settle its political accounts with its opponents.”

Last Tuesday, gunmen kidnapped Judge Hamran, in front of his house in a district of Sanaa governorate, following a campaign of incitement carried out by a Houthi satellite channel against the judge, to be killed at dawn on Thursday.
