Jordan: Arbitrary arrests, torture and other ill-treatment and lack of adequate medical care of detained protestors
Amnesty International has written to the Jordanian authorities urging them to drop all charges against individuals held solely for peacefully protesting since mid-November, and to ensure that all 116 individuals due to be released following a Royal Decree announced on 10 December will be released without further delay, The organization is concerned that most if not all of these individuals were held as prisoners of conscience for days or weeks solely for exercising their rights to peaceful assembly and expression.
