AMMAN —The National Center for Human Rights (NCHR) has disclosed the prosecution and trial of a number of law enforcement officers (males and females) from the Public Security Directorate, who were convicted on charges of “mistreatment” filed by two complainants in two separate incidents, according to Al-Ghad News.اضافة اعلان

The first complaint involved “claim of mistreatment” during an arrest and detention at one of the security centers, the second incident involved a woman who complained that she was allegedly subjected to beating by members of the women police while she took part in a peaceful protest in 2020.

NCHR commissioner-general, Alaa Al-Armouti, said that the prosecution of the concerned law enforcement officers reinforces a “no impunity” approach, calling for enhancing the oversight role of the center, and requesting that the center be provided with detailed files of such cases, “and not only the findings or the investigation.”

The police officers were tried at the Police Court of the Public Security Directorate. NCHR has also requested that similar incidents be referred to regular criminal courts.
