AMMAN — The Centre for Defending Freedom of Journalists (CDFJ) on Monday expressed its rejection of continuing the detention of journalist Amjad Mualla over a post on Facebook.

Mualla is accused of defaming and slandering the deputy overall leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Zaki Bani Rsheid. Although the detention was not related to a media case, the centre condemned the detention, according to a CDFJ statement.

However, CDFJ stressed its rejection of using social media outlets to spread rumours and slander, calling for a just trial for Mualla.
