US DoS releases Jordan Human Rights Report for 2013

The U.S. Department of State recently released the 2013 Human Rights Reports, including the Jordan report. I originally became aware of this through the news story on Ammannet titled “الخارجية الأميركية تنتقد اوضاع حقوق الإنسان بالأردن‎” or “US State Department criticizes the human rights situation in Jordan.” The story highlights some of the troubling findings in the report specific to Jordan including, among others, torture and abuse in prisons, politically motivated arrests, and restrictions on freedom of expression and the press.

The site cataloging all of the HR reports and other related information is here

The Jordan report is below.
