According to data provided by the ministry, carried by Hala News, the alternative penalties include options such as community service, community and electronic monitoring, and restrictions on convicts from accessing specific places.

New approach to criminal policy
The ministry, in collaboration with other competent authorities, assumes the responsibility of monitoring convicts and ensuring their compliance with the required alternatives, as part of Jordan's new criminal policy.

This policy aims to allow convicted individuals to continue their lives without severing their livelihoods or associating with perpetrators of crimes and other individuals charged and sentenced.

The recent announcement is part of the "Justice in Numbers" campaign, implemented by the Ministry on social media platforms.

Alongside the issuance of 39 non-conviction certificates in Arabic and 3,030 certificates in English, the Ministry revealed that a total of 196,000 non-conviction certificates have been issued from the beginning of the year until the end of May.
