During the latest meeting of the legal committee on Monday, Safadi passionately reiterated the council's unwavering support for public freedoms, Ammon News reported.

A goal to fortify freedoms
He emphasized that their goal is to fortify these freedoms, while also drawing attention to the critical need for discernment. Safadi highlighted the distinction between responsible freedom and the dangers of defamation, insult, and the spreading of harmful rumors that have unfortunately become all too common on various social media platforms.

He underscored the necessity of addressing these issues legally to safeguard the rights of individuals and protect the fabric of our society.

In light of the ever-evolving landscape of freedom and inclusivity in the country, Safadi emphasized that the council is eager to hear the diverse opinions on this important law.

Active in the decision-making process
He expressed their commitment to fostering a society where everyone is actively involved in decision-making processes. This commitment, he noted, is in line with the guidance and vision of His Majesty King Abdullah, who advocates for a political system that fosters a parliamentary culture grounded in well-defined programs and ideologies.

The call for joint participation in discussing the Electronic Crimes Law is not merely a formality but a genuine effort to create a balanced and effective legal framework. Safadi urged the government to step up its efforts to promote legal awareness, dispelling confusion, and clearing misconceptions surrounding the law.
