Jordan’s Lower House Rejects Amendments to Cybercrimes Law

Jordan’s Lower House has rejected the amended cybercrimes law. The law was redrafted by the Government in December 2018 to try and address criticism of it, particularly in relation to the definition of hate speech. The definition was amended to ‘every writing and every speech or action intended to provoke sectarian or racial sedition, advocate violence or foster conflict between followers of different religions and various components of the nation’.
