Sample Letter:

Dear Minister Bassam Talhouni,

I am writing again regarding the continued violation of Amer Jubran’s most basic human rights.

Amer Jubran is a Jordanian citizen who currently has a case before Jordan’s Court of Cassation. Mr. Jubran was arrested on May 5, 2014 by agents of the General Intelligence Directorate and held in incommunicado detention for close to two months. During this period, he was deprived of legal counsel, tortured, and forced to sign a false confession he was not even permitted to read. Jubran was sentenced to 10 years in prison in July, 2015 based solely on this confession obtained through torture.

The violation of Mr. Jubran’s human rights has continued while in prison. He is now being threatened by prison officials, who are  limiting contact with his family and pushing for him to be placed in solitary confinement.

I am writing now to urge you once more to take immediate steps to ensure that his appeal before the Court of Cassation receives full and independent review and that his rights be respected while he awaits his appeal.

The severe  violations of human rights in Mr. Jubran’s case must be condemned and the unjust verdict and sentence reversed.
