Court freezes proceedings in case against Hroub

By Petra - Feb 19,2013 - Last updated at Feb 19,2013

AMMAN — The Amman Criminal Court on Tuesday put on hold a case filed against Josat satellite channel over a programme presented by Rula Hroub, who was elected as MP.

The decision was taken after Hroub’s lawyer, Rateb Tarawneh, contested a court ruling to go ahead with the trial, regardless of her immunity.

Earlier this month, the court decided that Hroub’s immunity as a member of the Lower House had no bearing on the case since the lawsuit was filed on July 25, 2012 before her name was published in the Official Gazette as a winning deputy on January 29, 2013.
