Media watchdog urges Jordan king to reform anti-terror law

Jordanian King Abdullah II at the Parliament on November 3, 2013 in AmmanMedia watchdog Reporters Without Borders (RSF) on Monday urged Jordan’s King Abdullah II to reform the country’s “repressive” anti-terrorism law, saying recent amendments to the legislation are “disturbing.” The amendments, approved in April, criminalise “the use of information technology, the Internet or any means of publication or media, or the creation of a website, to facilitate terrorist acts or back groups that promote, support or fund terrorism.” RSF Secretary-General Christophe Deloire said in his letter to the king on Monday that the changes were phrased in a “general manner that leaves the judicial authorities a great deal of discretionary power, with a resulting danger of arbitrary decisions”.
