Working together to Defend the Freedom of Press

 

 

Recollections

  • Dozens of journalists unjustly entangled in publication and free expression proceedings

  • Thirteen weeklies shut down under the temporary (executive-implemented) Press and Publications Law of 1998

  • Excessive monetary fines imposed on journalists by courts

  • Forty-two laws in place preventing freedom of press and expression in Jordan
