Media commission suspends publication of Alquds Alarabi

By JT - Dec 06,2015 - Last updated at Dec 06,2015

AMMAN — Alquds Alarabi newspaper was allowed under the law to print and publish in Jordan but it “violated the Press and Publications Law” and so its publication was suspended as of November 29 until it rectifies its status, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, quoted a Jordan Media Commission (JMC) statement as saying on Sunday.

The JMC said organising the work of media outlets in the Kingdom in accordance with the law is its top priority. Commenting on the decision, the Centre for Defending the Freedom of Journalists said it was a step backwards after authorities allowed the newspaper to publish in Jordan in 2104.
