AMMAN — The conference on enhancing the role of civil society institutions in enhancing human rights concluded on Thursday.

Among top recommendations was establishing a joint council between the government and the civil society institutions, to followup on human rights cases, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The event was organised by the National Centre for Human Rights (NCHR) under an EU project to support civil society institutions in Jordan.

Participants also recommended reconsidering laws related to human rights and public freedoms, and reviewing  the Cybercrime Law’s articles that allow detaining  journalists for cases related to publishing.
