Letter to U.N. Special Rapporteur on the Independence of Judges and Lawyers on Yemen

The American Bar Association Center for Human Rights drafted a Letter to the UN Special Rapporteur on the Independence of Judges and Lawyers regarding threats to the independence of the legal profession in Yemen. The Center was particularly concerned where there appear to be government attempts to impede the free and full functioning of the legal profession as a means to stifle dissent.
