AMMAN — Amman Court of Appeals on Thursday released on bail the head of the National Union Party List, Mohammad Khashman, who was detained at the Jweideh Correctional and Rehabilitation Centre.

The court also released Amman Third District candidate Ahmad Safadi on bail.

The decision was taken after the two men won seats in the 17th Lower House.

Last week, the prosecutor general ordered the detention of  Safadi for 15 days pending interrogation over charges of illegally holding voter identification cards, while Khashman was detained on Saturday for allegedly trying to buy votes.
