AMMAN — The defence lawyer who has taken on the case of the Jordanian soldier accused of killing three US soldiers, Maarek Tawayha, filed an appeal earlier today, Wednesday, in a bid to clear the court’s ruling.

First Sgt Maarik Tawayha, was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison with hard labour on Monday, for the death of three US soldiers, whom he shot at Jafer airbase in 2016.

Lawyer, Subhi Mawas, asked in his appeal the sentenced person be acquitted or be declared not criminally responsible for the charges.
