The government of Yemen said on Thursday the acting representative of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights has abused their job, has become biased and, therefore, he is on longer welcome to the country.
The official Saba news agency quoted an official at the foreign ministry as saying, "we regretted taking this move which came in response to inappropriate performance of the representative and local coworkers who have been misleading international organizations including relief agencies, a problem which has been reflected negatively on lives of thousands of innocents".
The official said the government had provided detailed reports based on field data about serious violations of rights of the civilians by the Houthi militants, Saba said.
"Our reports were authentic, impartial and contained facts given by relatives of victims," the source added.
The government's reports included the one over the blockade on the province of Taiz depriving population of food, medicines and water, the official said. "The reports by international organizations, however, did not include details provided by us and lacked key facts abut the real situation in Yemen".
Days ago, activists and journalists from Yemen and other countries launched a media campaign urging an end to the blockade on Taiz.
The blockade was imposed by the Houthi militants as a war tactic when battles broke out in the province several months ago.
Yemen has been also suffering from a blockade on its sea, land and air routes which was part of the military operation launched in late March by the Saudi-led coalition.
International organizations have been calling for lifting the coalition-imposed blockade which has left Yemen to face the worst humanitarian crisis ever.
