What Is The January Agreement
In September 2019, discussions took place between the ruling parties and the centre-right moderates, the Christian Democrats, the centre-back party and the liberals on an agreement on measures to combat gang violence and organised crime.  Negotiations failed on 21 September 2019, with three of the centre-right parties (M, L and KD) leaving the talks. The spokesman for the Moderate Commission for Justice Policy said: “We can approve a lot of the crime prevention work [proposals]. With regard to strengthening judicial policy, I can confirm that we are still a long way from each other. Moderates called for additional police officers, a doubling of the period of detention for gang offences, the ability to pass evidence through the state, and the abolition of mandatory light sentences for young offenders. The Christian Democrats, centrist parties and liberals all stressed the ability of witnesses to testify on condition of anonymity.  Member States that break with the values of the EU and the rule of law should have serious consequences. History teaches us what can happen if we turn a blind eye to the abuse of democratic rights and freedoms. Secondly, the UN aimed at normalizing the status quo by facilitating the redeployment of government and Houthi forces in two phases within 21 days, rather than pressuring the Houthis to withdraw from Hodeida and its three ports as per UN Security Council Resolution 2216 (2015). Failing to complete the redeployment of the Joint Forces and Houthi militiamen a year later, contrary to the 21 days provided for by the agreement, the Coordination Committee on Redeployment (RCC) convened more than seven joint meetings and numerous one-sided meetings to discuss the operational aspects of redistribution. In an attempt to show progress, the UN announced the creation of a joint operations center in September to monitor de-escalation efforts and facilitate destablishment of four joint observation posts in late October, after Abhijit Guha resumed his role as the third head in a year of the mission mission in support of the Hodeida agreement (UNMHA) and chair of the RCC. Although these steps have reduced security incidents in the city by approximately 80 percent, according to Griffiths, they failed to stop the Houthis from targeting a Yemeni government delegation in a missile and drone attack in late November.
Around that time, the Houthis also claimed responsibility for a deadly missile attack that left hundreds of coalition forces wounded in Mocha, which falls outside the scope of the agreement. These figures show, in relation to UN statements, that UN envoys ingest information to show success, without reporting on it in detail and transparency. In Sweden on Dec. Dec. 11, 2018, the Yemeni government and Houthi delegations agreed to swap more than 15,000 prisoners by the 20th of the following month, after having already exchanged lists. Not only have the parties missed the deadline, but they have also failed to comply with the overall agreement, even though, according to the United Nations, they have unilaterally released hundreds of prisoners since then. Between April and August 2019, 31 minors were released after being detained in Saudi Arabia. Houthi rebels released 290 detainees in September; Saudi Arabia released 128 Houthi detainees in November; and on New Year`s Day Houthi rebels released another six Saudi detainees.
