This is my story

I was forgotten in administrative detention for 20 years

I have been in administrative detention for 20 years under the excuse of “protecting” my life from those who wanted to kill me. They promised to get me out of prison but nothing changed. When a lawyer from the justice center for legal aid heard my story she defended me and helped me get out of prison. The lawyer fought for me with the administrative governor who agreed to let me out on a bail. I was free again, at last… after spending most of my good years in jail… I was free.  

Since 2008, the Justice Center for Legal Aid has been provided information, advice and representation to poor and vulnerable people in Jordan. Through its vast network of partners, JCLA has been able to conduct legal awareness sessions nationally, enabling people to become aware of, and access, essential legal help they would otherwise be unable to afford.
