AMMAN — Former director of the Public Security Directorate and Jordanian, Maj. Gen. Fadel Mohammad Al-Hmoud, criticized the state of the rule of law in Jordan, describing it as "seasonal" or "partial". اضافة اعلان

The comments were made during his participation in the "Rule of Law" session in the Communication Forum launched by the Crown Prince Foundation last Saturday.

During the session, Hmoud noted that Jordanians only seem to rise to demand the rule of law when an accident or crisis occurs, and as a result, the rule of law is only enforced on a “seasonal” basis.

This lack of consistent commitment to the rule of law, according to Hmoud, is a major issue in Jordanian society.

Officials’ commitment to law is crucialHmoud also emphasized that what is more important than the citizen's commitment to the law is the commitment of officials to the law.

This is because officials, wherever they are, act as models for the citizen, and it is their responsibility to uphold the rule of law.
