Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs, Frans Timmermans, Yemeni Goverment, Dutch ambassador to Yemen, Mr J. Verheul. x
It's been one month since Dutch journalist Judith Spiegel and her husband Boudewijn Berendsen got kidnapped by unknown armed men from their house. Last night, a video was posted online where Spiegel and her husband were appealing for help and rescue from the Dutch and the Yemeni government. "We are very scared, a solution really needs to come forward. We are calling on everyone to make the government and the embassy move, to agree with the conditions set," said Berendsen.

Kidnappers believed to be linked to Al-Qaeda group gave 10 days duration till their demands are met otherwise what we fear will happen. "Family, media, people from the Netherlands: do something! We must find a way to get out of this, otherwise we will be dead in 10 days anyway. Do something together, DO SOMETHING!" in tears said Spiegel.

In this petition, we strongly urge the Dutch and Yemeni government to do whatever it takes to set Judith Spiegel and her husband free as soon as possible. Let's make this together and give them freedom! Your signature does matter!
