Youth Sentenced to Fine, Jail for Insulting University Student

AMMAN —AlGhad— The issuance of a court ruling against one youth, sentencing him to three months in prison and a fine of JOD1,500, for insulting a young woman and harassing her publicly, has renewed calls for the founding of laws to criminalise harassment.

So far, the entirety of Jordan’s law and legislation does not contain a law or clause which criminalises harassment.

Specialists see this as an opportunity to submit an amendment to the penal code, to explicitly criminalise sexual harassment.
