Talking points and tips:

2)    Talking points:

**Amer Jubran was detained on May 5th, 2014.  He has been held  for more than 14 days     without charge or access to a lawyer.

**Jordan has made public claims that it is undergoing democratic reforms and respecting civil     liberties. However, it continues to be the subject of ongoing reports by international human     rights organizations concerning its use of arbitrary arrest and administrative detention to limit     freedom of speech.

**Amer Jubran’s rights are being violated, and a response is expected as to what the Embassy     is doing in regards to this matter.

Dear Ambassador Dr. Alia Hatoug Bouran,

I am writing again to express my growing concern for Jordanian national Amer Jubran who was detained on May 5th, 2014 and has now been held for more than 14 days. He has not been charged with any crime and has had no access to a lawyer. Amer Jubran is a long-time Palestinian activist and a well-known voice of dissent in the Arab world.

Over the last few years, Jordan has made public claims that it is undergoing democratic reforms and respecting civil liberties. However, it continues to be the subject of ongoing reports by international human rights organizations concerning its use of arbitrary arrest and administrative detention to limit freedom of speech.

The Jordanian Embassy has stated that it is looking into this matter, but no action or information has been forthcoming.

Freedom of speech is an internationally recognized human right. Mr. Jubran’s rights are clearly being violated by the Jordanian government. He should be released immediately.

Please let me know what you intend to do regarding this matter.

Sincerely,

*************************
