He called on the King to respond to the demands of the Jordanian people who reject the law, emphasizing in the same context that "there are no other options but the King, who is closest to the pulse of the people and has constitutional authority to protect the citizens," Jo24 News reported.

Haddad added that opponents of the Cybercrimes Law do not reject the articles that penalize blackmail or other provisions that regulate the online space, but the danger lies in articles 15, 16, 17, 18, and beyond, which are unjust to citizens, silence voices and suppress public freedoms guaranteed by the Jordanian constitution, and include fines that the majority of Jordanian could never pay.
