AMMAN — Jordan Media Commission Director General Amjad Qadi, Monday, circulated a gag order to all media outlets, banning publication regarding the case of Jordanian writer Nahed Hattar.

The gag order, which applies to social media, was initiated by the State Security Court's prosecutor general’s office earlier in the day.

The ban is intended to "protect the secrecy of the investigation", the order said.
