AMMAN — Deputy Farid Haddad expressed his hope that the King would rescind the draft cybercrimes law, now that it has passed through the
previous legislative stages.
He called on the King to respond to the demands of the
Jordanian people who reject the law, emphasizing in the same context that
“there are no other options but the King, who is closest to the pulse of
the people and has constitutional authority to protect the citizens,” Jo24
Haddad added that opponents of the Cybercrimes Law do
not reject the articles that penalize blackmail or other provisions that
regulate the online space, but the danger lies in articles 15, 16, 17, 18, and
beyond, which are unjust to citizens, silence voices and suppress public
freedoms guaranteed by the Jordanian constitution, and include fines that the
majority of Jordanian could never pay.
