Journalists angered by restrictions imposed on the media in Yemen are naming names. At a protest Tuesday, they presented a list of the biggest violators of press freedoms and journalists in Yemen since 2005. The demonstration in Sana’a’s Freedom Square was the 14th weekly demonstration journalists have held to demand greater press freedoms.

According to the list provided by Women Journalists Without Chains, a group organizing the protests, the worst on the list is National Security, with 96 breaches, making up 27.82 percent of the violations.
The second is the Ministry of Information, with 95 violations, at 27.53 percent.
The third is the Ministry of Interior, with 54 violations, making up 15.65 percent of violations.
In fourth place is the Political Security Office, having 45 violations and, lastly, the Military Guidance Unit is accused of 11 violations.

These statistics were based on reports by Women Journalists Without Chains, with help from statistics from Amnesty International, Reporters Without Borders, the US State Department, and the Amman Center for Human Rights.
