The State Security Court (SSC) prosecutor reported that the Court ruled to release Islamic preacher Amjad Qourshah on a bail on Tuesday.
The prosecutor added that Qourshah was detained mid-June of this year, when the court accused Qourshah of violating the latest amendments to Jordan's anti-terrorism law, which criminalizes acts that "negatively impact [Jordan's] relations with a foreign state" or acts that threaten to harm society, peace and security.
Qourshah had previoulsy released a video on YouTube in which he urged the people of Jordan and the Jordanian Army to rethink the war against Daesh and other militant organizations operating in Iraq and Syria.
