Swede Imprisoned in Yemen

The newspaper Göteborgs-Posten reports that a 26 year old Swede has been imprisoned in Yemen for the past nine months.

But neither his family nor the Swedish Foreign Ministry know what he is accused of. The foreign ministry has demanded information from the Yemeni authorities about the timeframe for the legal proceedings against the Swede, without result. And there’s no indication that he has been allowed a lawyer.

Sweden has no embassy in Yemen, and diplomatic contacts are handled by the Dutch embassy in the Yemeni capital San’a.
