Lower House approves amended changes to Cybercrimes Law… | #cybercrime | #computerhacker

AMMAN — The Lower House has
approved the Cybercrimes Law after approving the amended changes by the
Senate during a session earlier today. اضافة اعلان

On Tuesday, the Senate introduced modifications
to Article 15, 16, and 17 of the Cybercrimes Law, empowering the
judiciary to impose imprisonment, fines, or both, instead of the previous dual
punishment system. Meanwhile, fines for personal defamation have been reduced
to range between JD5,000 to JD20,000.

Article 16 prescribes imprisonment for no less than three months and a fine of
no less than JD5,000 and no more than JD20,000 for anyone who deliberately
spreads, attributes, or ascribes actions in cyberspace that could lead to the
assassination of a person’s character.

Article 17 stipulates imprisonment for a period ranging from one to three years
or a fine of no less than JD5,000 and no more than JD20,000 dinars, or both
penalties, for anyone who intentionally publishes material in cyberspace that
incites sedition, animosity, targets public order, incites hatred, calls for
violence, justifies it, or insults religions.

The Senate removed the phrase
“or both penalties”) of Article 33 because the provision sent by the
House of Representatives only mentions one punishment, which is a fine ranging
from JD15,000 to JD30,000 for anyone who refuses to carry out the orders of the
public prosecutor or the competent court or violates them.

Additionally, the Senate recommended
that the government provide technical support to the Cybercrimes Unit at
the Directorate of Public Security to enable it to keep up with the rapid
technological developments.
