Cairo – Sputnik. "The revolutionary youth Ibrahim al-Hamadi and his comrades have been unfairly imprisoned for the bombing of ousted Ali Saleh eight years ago," Kerman, a member of the Shura Council of the Islah party, said in a post on her Facebook page. Years are free, thankfully. "
In the same publication, the names of those released were: "Ibrahim Hamoud Mohammed Al Hammadi, Shoaib Mohammed Saleh Al-Baajari, Abdullah Saad Abdullah Al-Ta'ami, Ghaleb Ali Ghaleb Al-Eizari and Mohammed Ahmed Ali Ali Omar."
The Yemeni judiciary began the trial of the defendants in the assassination attempt in August 2013, after the Specialized Criminal Court (SSSC) received the case file from the Public Prosecution.
In 2011, activist Tawakkol Karman led popular protests against President Saleh and his regime, which led to him handing over the presidency through a Gulf initiative that led to the transfer of power to his then deputy, Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, before he assumed the presidency of Yemen in February 2012, until today.
In a context, a Yemeni security source in Sanaa told "Sputnik" that "the process of releasing the suspects who were detained in the capital Sanaa, was through a prisoner exchange deal, between the Houthis and the Islah Party, led by tribal sheikhs and led to the exchange of 24 prisoners and detainees, including the five Accused of attempting to assassinate Saleh. "
On June 3, 2011, the late Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh was assassinated in a Friday prayer attack at the presidential palace mosque with senior state officials, when he detonated explosive devices, killing 14 people, including the Speaker of the Shura Council. Abdel-Ghani, 242 others, including the two prime ministers and MPs, were injured, while Saleh narrowly escaped death, and was critically wounded following numerous surgeries in Saudi Arabia and Yemen.
The assassination attempt was met with Arab and international condemnation, classified by the UN Security Council in its resolution 2014 in 2011, as a terrorist attack aimed at undermining the political process in Yemen.
