Published

on

A Yemeni court has issued death sentences against ten defendants including President Donald Trump, Saudi King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, and crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud for alleged war crimes.

The case against the defendants was held in their absence at Houthi-run Specialised Criminal Court in the Yemeni governorate of Saada over the Saudi-led coalition’s attack on a bus full of young boys in Dahyan in the Majz district

The Houthi-owned Yemen News Agency (SABA) confirmed that the court issued death sentences to Donald Trump, Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, Mohammed Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, and Norton Schwartz for their alleged roles in the attack.

Commander of the Saudi Air Force, Turki bin Bandar bin Abdulaziz, Yemeni President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, Yemen’s Vice President Ali Mohsen Saleh Al-Ahmar, Prime Minister Ahmed bin Dagher, Defence Minister Muhammad Al-Maqdishi, and former US Defence Secretary James Norman Mattis were also sentenced to death.

The news agency indicated that the defendants are also required to pay a $10 billion fine to families of those killed in the 2019 airstrike.

The charges related to an airstrike which reportedly hit a school bus, killing 51 people including 40 children

The news agency reported that: “The prosecution has registered its partial appeal to the fifth paragraph of the verdict, regarding the right of those included in the indictment. Thus, the court has not decided on it yet. Private prosecution attorney, Hamdan Shani, joined his appeal to the prosecution’s appeal, while the defence attorney, Abdel Wahab Al-Fadhli, reserved the right to appeal on behalf of the defendants.”

Published

The original footage of the incident shows it dearly as a 2016 campaign donation and nothing more,” the statement said.

“The people of Ghana are discerning and will not be swayed by obvious fabrications designed by persons who always seek to bring the name of the Republic into disrepute and sully its image amongst the comity of nations.

The government of Ghana noted without much surprise, a desperate attempt by the campaign of John Mahama to falsely accuse the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of bribery.

READ THE FULL STATEMENT BELOW;

  1. The Government of Ghana notes, without much surprise, a desperate attempt by the
    campaign of John Mahama to falsely accuse the President of the Republic, Nana Addo
    Dankwa Akufo-Addo, of bribery.
  2. The false accusation is premised on a doctored video of a 2016 campaign donation to
    then-candidate
     Akufo-Addo. Characteristic of the NDC’s reliance on waging a campaign
    of lies, fake news and fabrications, the opposition candidate and his party have now
    sponsored the doctoring of this video and superimposed it with new voices to create the
    the false impression that it is a post-2016 event showing the President receiving a bribe.
  3. Whilst we are not surprised by the new low by the opposition candidate and his party, we
    remind Ghanaians that they should expect more of such falsehoods and fabrications in
    the days leading up to the election. It has become clear that candidate Mahama’s failed
    the campaign now sees fake news and fabrications, as well as an amendment of their earlier
    promises as the only hope to salvage what is going to be another decisive victory for
    President Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party.
  4. We are not disappointed that Mr Mahama and the current NDC leadership will stoop so
    low with obvious fabrications which they hope can change the minds of Ghanaians. It is
    and will always be their stock-in-trade.
  5. The people of Ghana are discerning and will not be swayed by obvious fabrications
    designed by persons who always seek to bring the name of the Republic into disrepute
    and sully its image amongst the comity of nations.
  6. The general public and the media are encouraged to be vigilant in order not to fall prey
    to the antics of these persons who desperately desire to tarnish the image of the Republic
    for their own selfish, parochial, partisan ends.
  7. For the avoidance of doubt, President Akufo-Addo has never been involved in any
    untoward conduct, let alone take a bribe. The original footage of the incident shows it
    clearly as a 2016 campaign donation and nothing more.

He advised the media and general public to be watchful in order not to fall prey to the antics of the opposition NDC whose main objective is to dirty the image of the country for their narrow-minded gains.
