Jordanian minister resigns Information about the lack of freedom of expression

Jordanian Information Minister, Tahar Adwan, announced Tuesday he has resigned for what he believes laws "restrictive to freedom of opinion." "I have submitted my resignation to the Prime Minister Maarouf Bakhit to protest against the press laws were discussed in a special session of Parliament which are inconsistent with the strategy I proposed on Saturday," Adwan said.

Some laws, especially those concerning the fight against corruption, are "restrictive to freedom of opinion," added the minister and former editor of the independent newspaper "Al Arab Al Youm '. King Abdullah II decided to convene the Parliament in extraordinary session to discuss the adoption of a series of bills.
