AMMAN (AFP) - Jordan's Information Minister Taher Adwan said on Tuesday he has resigned because of laws he deemed "restrictive for freedom of expression." "I submitted my resignation today to Prime Minister Maaruf Bakhit in protest at a government decision" to debate new press and publication laws in parliament that he opposed, Adwan told AFP. "In addition, MPs will debate proposed anti-corruption and penal laws. I consider these laws restrictive for freedom of expression."
