Qatawneh added that the Freedoms Committee did not perform its role in solving this issue, indicating that he will summon the committee for a meeting to discuss detaining people without any right to do so. 

He stressed that he will submit his resignation to the committee if it does not address the matter, so that people do not hold him accountable.  

Qatawneh also called for amending the Crime Prevention Law, which is being exploited for purposes other than what it was set for, adding “I believe crimes should be defined clearly under such law and things must not be left for speculation.”
