The Jordanian writer and political activist Sufian Al-Tal said that the Jordanian security services prevented him from travelling while going to see his family in Turkey, without giving a prior notice to him or his lawyers.
He stressed that the authorities banned him for his political stances against normalisation with the Israeli occupation, and warning of conducting any deals with the occupation.
Al-Tal pointed out that his lawyer confirmed that the ban is illegal, and revealed that the security services at the airport referred them to the State Military Security Court for more information, without giving ang further information.
In a similar context, the family of the Jordanian political activist, Sabri Al-Mashala, said that the security services referred him to the State Security Court, adding that they tried to pay a bail to release him, but they were informed that the case was still being considered.
Al-Mashala’s family stressed that their son had submitted a communication to the National Center for Human Rights on the violations he was subjected to for his political activity, stressing that he rejects all the measures and the charges filed against him.
