Condemnation and denunciation
The Charitable Society for Social Welfare (CSSW) condemns and denounces the assassination of Mohammed al-Shujaina, director of CSSW in Aden branch, who was kidnapped on Tuesday 2 October 2018 by an armed group while he was heading for his place of work and taken to an unknown destination.

Assassination crime … targets humanitarian and voluntary work
We in CSSW, while condemning this crime, we consider all harassment, incitement, detention and murder against its employees to be contrary to international laws and conventions. Such criminal acts aim primarily to undermine the humanitarian, relief and voluntary work of various humanitarian institutions and organizations under difficult security and economic situations in Yemen..
CSSW also affirms that it will continue to provide its services through its various developmental, relief and social programs and projects to all needy and deprived people of all the Yemen’s population without any selectivity or discrimination.
CSSW, while condemning and denouncing this crime, it calls upon the government and the competent security authorities in Aden governorate to assume their full security responsibility in pursuing and arresting the perpetrators and bring them to justice. CSSW affirms its adherence to its legal right to demand that the perpetrators be brought to justice.
CSSW will also issue successive press releases in the coming days to share with the public any updated information on the issue.
A call for condemnation and solidarity
As an active humanitarian organization in Yemen that works under the supervision and control of the competent official bodies, CSSW calls upon all the United Nations agencies, and local and international humanitarian organizations to denounce this criminal behavior and calls upon them to issue statements of solidarity with CSSW and its staff.
